The goal of this conference was to enable teachers to effectively integrate Digital Technologies into existing programs. Session on the new curriculum, CS Unplugged and specific idea / activity workshops all allowed participants to gain a better understanding of the new Curriculum and get ideas on how to incorporate it into what they already do.
I presented two workshops, the PowerPoint presentations for those workshops are below:
The conference and workshops were a valuable opportunity to network with colleagues and gain an insight into the challenges faced by teachers tasked with implementing the new curriculum. One big issue is that whilst the curriculum has been well resourced in terms of teaching materials, teachers have not been given sufficient to come to grips with the content and many are expected to upskill in their own time / during school holidays.
Happily both my workshops were well received and it is hoped that the material shared will be useful to teachers.
