Who should attend?
The General Capability is the responsibility of every teacher, at every year level. We'll look at the whole continuum so come along whatever year level you teach in. 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. 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.
*technocentric? Well that's something I can talk to you about isn't it? ;)
