UPDATE: This course has 5 spare places each week. Grab a ticket to join us! Missed out? We are going to aim to run a second course with double the capacity in 2017.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to pop in to one of the last remaining workshops, or join the waitlist for 2017 courses. We will notify you as soon as they become available.
Would you like to implement digital technologies in your classroom? This is the course for you!
You are invited to complete the free online professional development course from CSER Digital Technologies Education alongside a professional learning network. We have 30 spaces in this course:
- 20 places for Primary Teacher Education Students from Macquarie University
- 5 places for Primary Teacher Education Students from other universities
- 5 places for Primary Teachers
There are 9 face-to-face meetups (one for each of the course modules), running from 4:15pm-5:45pm on Thursdays. Each session will have guest speakers: a teacher who has implemented digital technologies in a lesson, offering insight and feedback, and a representative from an organisation who can support you to extend your students' learning (such as ICTENSW). Attending is like 'plugging in' to a ready-made support network to help you stay ahead of the curve on digital technologies. No experience necessary.

The course is designed to introduce the fundamental concepts of the Australian curriculum – starting with Algorithms and Data Representation and moving toward an introduction to Visual Programming.
No prior knowledge necessary. Perfect for all teachers of all year levels – to understand where students are starting from. We introduce activities and examples that relate to familiar classroom activities.
