This is an opportunity for ANY teacher or school leader to be intensively upskilled in the Digital Technologies subject concepts and skills over a 2 consecutive day course via completion of the (AITSL accredited and certified) CSER MOOC (online course). While this online course could be done in a teacher's own time, finding the uninterrupted time to do that is usually the issue.
For schools that are committed to ensuring at least one staff member is fully informed about this subject before the beginning of 2018 when teaching and reporting of this subject is mandated, this is an opportunity to support a staff member to complete the course. The cost to an AISWA member school will be 2 days of teacher relief. There is no charge for the course. The participants should be certified by the end of the 2 days. We have had more than 75 teachers complete this MOOC with us so far this year. It is also not uncommon for participants to complete 2 certificated courses during the two days!
This day will begin with an overview of the Digital Technologies subject and provide information about how the federally-funded and internationally acclaimed CSER MOOC has been designed to support teachers in their understanding of important fundmental concepts and skills in the Digital Technologies subject. This is will be presented by Steven Payne, the Western Australian support officer for CSER Digital Technologies.
After this brief introduction, Steven will assist participants to enrol in the CSER MOOC and ensure everyone is off to a good start. From experience, 2 solid days is considered to be sufficient time to work through the "Fundamentals" P-6 course (notionally 15 hours) that could take a whole year to complete in random chunks of time! It is a great opportunity to get it done and understood in one intensive session, with some support available for those who may need it at any point. Any of the MOOCS, including the F-6 extension, 7-8 and 9-10 can be tackled - it depends on each teacher's current level of experience.
Although working side by side, the course will be completed individually, as it would be at any other time. Bring headphones! Some contribution to an online community is expected as part of the course and this gives participants access to the ideas and resources of others. Working in a quiet group environment also gives time for networking and clarification during breaks.
Do consider this FINAL opportunity for 2017 to quickly become fully informed about concepts that will need teaching in 2018!
