In this webinar you will learn:
As part of the webinar, Karsten and Dan will make reference to a report, written by the ACA and commissioned by the New South Wales Department of Education, 2019 on the evidence of coding and computational thinking in teaching in Australia and overseas.
Who Should Attend?
For the past 3 years, the Australian Computing Academy has been providing comprehensive professional development for teachers, supporting the implementation of the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies. We are pleased to be able to continue this work in a modified online mode whilst we are facing current social distancing requirements.
Over 7 hour-long webinars, we will provide an overview of the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies and explore some of the key concepts of the curriculum - Data Representation, Digital Systems, Specification and Computational Thinking, and Algorithms. We will also take a look at assessment and Cyber Security.
You may attend one or all of the seminars, it is up to you! If you have been unable to attend one of our PD workshops in person this is a good opportunity to take part. It is also a great chance for a refresher on the curriculum if you have already attended one of our in-person workshops.
The webinars will be recorded and made available on our website.
