This workshop is a great introduction to the Digital Technologies Curriculum. It gives Primary School teachers an excellent insight into how they can infuse digital technologies into their current curriculum planning.
FLOW OF THE WORKSHOP
Digital Technologies Curriculum and Coding
Our first session of the day addresses what the Digital Technologies curriculum requires of teachers and why Coding (and computational thinking) is so important for the fast moving, global future we aim to prepare our students for.
Beginning with Scratch
The Australian Curriculum calls for student development in the use of a General Purpose Programming Language. However, students first need to develop their understanding of computational thinking and structures of Coding. Scratch is widely used, easy to understand, and a powerful approach for beginner students (and teachers) in the word of Coding.
Our third workshop session explores how we can teach HTML to our students easily, and use HTML as a tool for producing websites and presentations. You will be taken, step by step, through the fundamental structure of HTML and how to lead your students through building a website.
Unpacking and Planning the Digital Technologies Curriculum
Our final session will allow us to collaboratively unpack the Digital Technologies curriculum and discuss how you can begin to embed Coding into all subjects.
