Designing Digital Thinking: An Intro to the Digitech Curriculum
Mon. 24 April 2017, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm ACST
In this whole day workshop we will be exploring what kinds of thinking and learning the Digital Technologies curriculum demands of us and our students. WHilst we consider computation, systems and design thinking we will explore concepts like:
- Digital Systems
- Iterations and Impact
and discover that it's not just about code... in fact, it's very little to do with code...
We're going to explore cross curicular opportunities for digitech, what (and how) we should be assessing and how and what resources are available out there to help with planning, lesson implementation and hardware.
This will be a practical, hands on session. I'll provide coffee to keep those brains spinning as we deepen our understanding of all these excellent ways of thinking! ;)
A certificate will be issued for 8 hours of Professional development covering the following APSFTs
• 2.1 Content and teaching strategies of the teaching area
• 3.4 Select and use resources
• 4.5 Use ICT safely, responsibly and ethically
• 6.2 Engage in professional learning and improve practice
Who should attend?
Digital Technologies is an important subject for all of us. Especially primary and middle school teachers. We'll be exploring what we should cover, where we can find resources and how we can cover it. I'll do my best to tailor those resources to your needs. In fact, I will send a questionnaire out to all participants before we start to make sure I can tailor the content and resources to you and your students. This course is designed to suit a range of technical abilities too so don't worry if you need support or you're an ICT Whizz. We've got you covered :)
Will you be feeding me?
I'll provide some morning and afternoon tea and coffee. Please bring your own lunch or take advantage of the near by cafes on Port Road.
What Should I bring?
Bring an internet enabled device (A tablet, laptop etc.) - we'll be using a Google Doc to access some great resources that you can take back for your classrooms. It will also become a place for you to demonstrate your learning and pose questions as we explore.
