PL # 12557.


Starting on 20 Feb 2020
Cancellation permitted until 18/02/2020

Event registrations closed on 17/02/2020


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 with equipment, discussion and idea development, examples of practice, exploration of useful on-line and printed resources and some basic coding activities such as ScratchJr and Scratch.

(NB: This workshop is not recommended for teachers who are already familiar with the Technologies subjects or have completed the CSER 2 day immersion or who have had the consultant speak at an extended school staff meeting as there would be considerable repetition of content. It would be informative for school leaders or classroom support staff who are new to managing or supporting the Technologies subjects in the curriculum. )
