Event description

Description

Please join the Murdoch School of Education for a seminar presented by Steven Payne, Digital Technologies project officer (WA) for The University of Adelaide’s Computer Science Education Research Group. In this seminar, Steven will give an overview of the WA Digital Technologies curriculum (Pre-Primary to Year 6), including examples of how teachers are integrating the new subject area into their lessons.

The Computer Science Education Research Group (CSER) at the University of Adelaide have developed a number of open and online courses designed to assist teachers in addressing the new Digital Technologies learning area, and have also appointed project officers throughout Australia to help facilitate this within schools. The CSER free program includes:

  • Online courses for teacher professional development (Pre-Primary – Year 10);
  • Downloadable ‘PL-in-a-Box’ for self-facilitated school professional learning;
  • A national Digital Technologies Lending Library; and
  • Community-based support, online and face-to-face.

In this seminar Steven will give an introduction to CSER resources, including comprehensive online courses for PrePrimary to Year 10 teachers and links to an online community where thousands of teachers are sharing resources and ideas. In addition to discussing how coding and robotics can support the Digital Techologies curriculum, Steven will also be examining ‘unplugged’ digital technologies – ways of teaching the DT curriculum away from a computer.
