Digital Technologies Workshops are offered through 2018 by TASITE on behalf of the Australian Computing Academy (for the University of Sydney).
The workshop is a full-day training session to prepare teachers F-10 to teach the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies. The workshop provides an introduction of the concepts and goals of the Digital Technologies curriculum, as well as providing teachers with practical programming assistance to deliver the new curriculum in their classrooms.
The workshops will involve a curriculum overview, followed by a programming introduction using the Australian Digital Technologies Challenges being developed by the ACA.
The cost for attending a workshop is fixed at $70 including GST. This cost covers catering for the day (including lunch) and membership of TASITE, the state professional association. Attendees are asked to bring their laptop computer and power supply.
