Event description

Description

15 hour F-10 Professional Development program for 120 teachers to plan for and teach the Digital Technologies curriculum in 2018, conducted in five three-hour weekend sessions, with an online course providing a supporting community of practice, resource sharing and activity extension between sessions.

The aim of the program is to meet the immediate focus of teacher interest in preparing Digital Technology courses for 2018, and explore what is possible through the Digital Technologies curriculum while extending available pedagogical approaches to include student directed project based learning (PBL).

The course will address all years levels from Foundation (Prep) to year 10.

Sessions will be held on five Saturdays from 1pm to 4pm at the Griffith University Gold Coast campus in the G30 and G31 Arts and Education buildings.

The course is supported by the Teacher Education Industry Advisory Group (TEIAG) of Griffith University, the Gold Coast chapter of the Queensland Society for Computers in Education (QSITE), and sponsorship from Google means there is no charge (however parking on campus is $6 per day using the internal Paystay code of 42171998 or paybyplate permit machine code of 71998).

Numbers are capped at 120 participants and registration is on a first-come basis. If you have registered and are no longer able to attend, please contact Dr Zagami ASAP.
