Your stories: reflecting on 2018 in NSW
By Meridith Ebbs,
NSW Project Officer.
In 2018 there was an amazing demand for workshops from teachers and schools wanting to prepare for the 2019 launch of the NSW digital technologies syllabus. Last year Meridith Ebbs (NSW Project Officer) and Toni (ACT/NSW Project Officer) and #spotbot travelled throughout NSW both physically and virtually to deliver more than 103 events to almost 2000 teachers from 976 schools.
We have run workshops on Introduction to Digital Technologies, Design and Production, Visual Coding, Python and syllabus content.
We have travelled the full length of the NSW east coast, including Byron Bay to Bathurst, Tamworth, Wollongong and Newcastle. We have a lot more ground to cover in 2019. If you would like to be added to our map of places we have visited please contact us.

In 2019 we will be running workshops to explore the new Lending Library equipment, Micro:Bits, as well as design and production, and the Scratch visual programming environment.
We are also able to speak at your conferences, school events in person or via webinar. If you have participated in one of our workshops your school is eligible to apply to borrow one of our Library Kits for a term.
