Description

One Hundred Languages

Computers surround us in our daily lives, but the most powerful ideas of computing go beyond the sleek silver containers and glowing boxes. What are these ideas?

And how do we prepare our kids for a world where more and more of the problems around us look like computers? Join us for a computing workshop for school leaders and policymakers, specially tailored to help to ideate, synthesise and refine visions and practice for computing education roll-out school-wide.

This session will be capped at 30 participants. This session is open to leaders from Victorian Government Schools only.
