Planning Rigorous Integrated Inquiry Learning: This workshop takes teachers step by step through HOW they can plan rigorous inquiry units (integrated or not) starting with the Australian or State Curriculum. The planning process addresses developing learner centred-learning, self-regulation and meta-cognition, and developing big picture concepts and essential questions in a natural way. The planning process is built upon teachers developing shared common understandings of learning and progression and provides simple structures for formative and summative assessment.
You Can Teach Coding: This workshop, designed in conjunction with CLWB.org, is a great introduction to the Digital Technologies Curriculum and gives an excellent insight for teachers on how they can infuse it into their current curriculum planning. Suitable for both Primary and Secondary schools but Primary schools would spend more time on Scratch and HTML whilst Secondary schools would have a greater focus on Python.
