Presentation: Bananas About STEMx - Applications of fruit and high technology in 21st century learning.
For over a 100 years Australian hobbyists have been tinkering with home-brew electronics and learning through experimentation, with many STEM geeks learning to solder at the kitchen table while trying with varying levels of success to construct Dick Smith kits or amateur radio projects. This spirit of tinkering and hands on learning through experimentation is alive and well in 2013 but is much more accessible (and safe!) for teachers to implement in their classrooms and with extra-curricular groups.
Heard about Arduino, MaKeyMaKey, 3D Printing or Wearable Technology and wondered what all the buzz is about? Wondered if you and your students might be able to learn how to design, construct and program 'real' electronics and invent stuff? Do you have some 'techy' students that you would like to get started on some extended independent projects and are looking for resources? Wondering what bananas could have to do with electronics? This session is for you!

Presentation: Cherbourg Mojo
This year Kristy project managed Cherbourg Mojo, a 10 week mobile journalism training program in the small aboriginal community of Cherbourg, 250 km from Brisbane. A Mojo (Mobile + Journalist = MoJo) is a reporter who files digital stories from their community using portable technical tools such as smartphones. In this case the iPhone 5 and a special production kit designed for the iPhone 5 and professional-standard app was used for filming, editing and publishing MoJo stories. You’ll get a chance to have a sneak peak at the doco, Cherbourg Mojo Out Loud, and see how this contextualised literacy project moved a community and changed some young lives for the better.
Kristy works with for TAFE Qld English Language and Literacy Services (TELLS) whose students include adult migrants, refugees and Australians who do not have the language, literacy and numeracy skills to function adequately in our society or gain sustainable employment. A major focus of Kristy’s role is to provide technology professional development (in particular mobile learning and digital literacy) for teachers working with these cohorts across TAFE Institutes in Qld with the intent of making LLN learning more attractive and engaging.
