Event description:

Building capacity to implement the new digital technologies curriculum

On 18th September 2015 the Education Council endorsed the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies. Each state will have their own approach, but teaching programming, web development, systems, design and computational thinking will be essential learning outcomes. Recognising how to put this into practice in the classroom will be crucial. Is your school ready to implement? Are your teachers prepared? Do you know what this will look like across different learning areas and band levels?

The curriculum marks a transition towards increasing self-directed, project based learning to inspire greater creativity, innovation and problem solving skills. Teachers will require significant training and support to become enablers for students to create new technologies.
