The Australian Computing Academy (ACA) has funding from the federal government to deliver workshops to teachers across Australia to learn about programming and related concepts in Digital Technologies.
This workshop helps teachers better understand the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies, and introduces freely available resources for use in the classroom.
The workshops are delivered by Academy educators who are developing the DT Challenges. They are a mix of academics, teachers, and specialists in digital technologies.
Bring yourself and a laptop. We'll organise the rest, including lunch and a snack, as well as lots of classroom ready resources to take away.
Please go to the 10th floor of the Mitchell centre, to be escorted to the 13th floor.
