Description

This is a full day workshop for Primary teachers who need a quick and comprehensive overview of the WA syllabus for Digital Technologies and Design & Technologies: the assessment requirements, the kinds of thinking that students are required to develop and tools and resources to be able to cover them effectively. Included will be time to become familiar with the curriculum documents, unpack the meaning of terms, hands-on activities, discussion and idea development, examples of practice, exploration of on-line and printed resources and some basic coding activities.

(NB: This is not particularly recommended for teachers who have completed the CSER 2 day immersion (or courses) or who have had the consultant speak at a school staff meeting as there would be considerable repetition of content.)
