We are delighted to be partnering with The Stronger Smarter Institute on a Google Educator Grant project this year!

Together we invite you to join our virtual workshop on 'Building teacher capacity to incorporate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples histories and cultures into Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies lessons'.

Join presenters, Jesse King, Chief of Impact, Stronger Smarter Institute and Toni Falusi, Project Officer, CSER STEM Professional Learning Team to consider ways to authentically incorporate the General Capabilities and Cross Curriculum Priority: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures through the Digital Technologies subject area.

Specific topics of data, algorithms and programming for Years 3-4 and Years 5-6 bands will be used as examples. Although we focus on these year levels as a scope for this specific workshop, teachers will be invited to reflect on how they could adapt lessons for their own year levels. We encourage both primary and secondary classroom teachers with an interest in digital technologies to attend. 

Lesson ideas will include both ‘plugged’ and ‘unplugged’ options to cater for different levels of access to technology.

Participants will receive a resource take-away sheet and Padlet board used during the session for sharing resources and ideas, to support them in their continued learning.

The webinar will be held on Tuesday 27th September, 4:00pm -6:00pm ACST. A recording will also be made available after the event. 

Find out more and register for free via Eventbrite.

CSER and SSI would like to acknowledge Google Asia Pacific for funding this workshop via a Google ‘Educator Grant 2022’.
