Workshop Outline - Primary Teachers

This workshop is a great introduction to the Digital Technologies Curriculum and gives an excellent insight for Primary School teachers on how they can infuse it into their current curriculum planning.

Flow of the workshop

Digital Technologies Curriculum and Coding
This session addresses what the Digital Technologies curriculum is requiring of teachers and why Coding (and computational thinking) is so important for the future we are preparing students for.
 
Beginning with Scratch
The Australian Curriculum calls for the students to develop their capacity to use a General Purpose Programming Language. However, you cannot begin there with students as they first need to develop their understanding of computational thinking and the structures of coding. Scratch is a widely used, easy to understand, yet powerful approach for starting students (and teachers) in the world of Coding.
 
HTML
This session shows how teachers can teach students HTML easily as a tool for producing websites and presentations. Teachers will be taken through step by step the fundamental structure of HTML and how they can lead students through building a website.
 
Unpacking and Planning the Digital Technologies Curriculum
The last session of the day creates the opportunity for the participants to collaboratively unpack the Digital Technologies curriculum and discuss how they could begin to embed Coding into all subjects

Python
A General Purpose Programming Language is one that you can build a commercial grade program on (Scratch nor HTML does not meet this requirement). Python is used across the world in schools and is a much better introductory language than Java or C for students and teachers.
 
- Introducing Python
- Python ‘Mechanics’
- Python Turtle Graphics
- Graphing with Python

- Putting it Into Practice and Going Further
 
Unpacking and Planning the Digital Technologies Curriculum
