    The aim of this all-day hands-on session is to help teachers make the most of Adobe Creative Cloud and associated Adobe software in the learning and teaching process with a focus on enhancing 21st century digital literacy, communication and creativity skills in alignment with the Victorian & Australian Curriculum. All Victorian Government Secondary Schools now have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud applications through the EduStar portal and most Victorian Independent and Catholic schools also have access. No previous experience with Adobe software is required and resources will be provided for both new and experienced Adobe users. This event will be facilitated by Dr Tim Kitchen, Adobe’s Senior Education Specialist for Asia Pacific and will aim to cover a mix of the following resources and educational concepts:

    • Photoshop tips & tricks for teachers
    • Working with the free Adobe Spark creativity tools
    • Multimodal Text with Adobe Muse & Adobe Spark
    • Flipped Learning with Adobe Presenter, Adobe Spark & Premiere Clip
    • Basic Video production with Adobe Premiere Clip & Premiere Pro
    • PDF & document management with Adobe Acrobat
    • Simple animation in the classroom with Adobe Character Animator
    • Classroom resources on the Adobe Education Exchange
    • New research in teaching Gen Z students

    Digital Technologies Workshops are offered through 2018 by DLTV on behalf of the Australian Computing Academy (for the University of Sydney).

    The workshop is a full-day training session to prepare teachers F-10 to teach the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies. The workshop provides an introduction of the concepts and goals of the Digital Technologies curriculum, as well as providing teachers with practical programming assistance to deliver the new curriculum in their classrooms.

    The workshops will involve a curriculum overview, followed by a programming introduction using the Australian Digital Technologies Challenges being developed by the ACA.

    Attendees are asked to bring a laptop computer and power supply.

    Example Activities

    • Crypto unplugged DiC activity (rot cipher)

    • ACA Challenge - Cookie Clicker

    • ACA Challenge - Python Turtle (Flags or Snow HoC)

    • Visual and text programming

    • Blockly Turtle

    • Python Biology

    • Resources and Activities Roadshow

    This workshop is for teachers who already have a grasp of some basic programming concepts: variables, iteration (loops) and conditionals (if-else statements).

    It is targeted at teachers of Years 7-10.


    In this workshop, attendees will learn how to teach computational problem solving using Python as a tool.

    Outcomes:

    Participants will tackle 3 computational thinking problems. By the end of the workshop, they should be able to:

    • Describe computational problems in terms of clearly defined inputs and outputs (abstraction).
    • Describe the solution to it a sequence of simple steps (decomposition).
    • Define those steps in the form of a flow chart.
    • Write the solutions using Python code.
    • Evaluate the solutions based on the criteria of simplicity, readability and efficiency.

    Python is an interpreted text based general purpose programming language and is also the only professional programming language that was designed with beginners in mind; it is intuitive and easy to use.

    This workshop is for teachers who already have a solid grasp of basic programming concepts: variables, iteration (loops) and conditionals (if-else statements).

    It is targeted at teachers of Years 7-10.


    In this workshop, attendees will learn how to import websites, tweets and published books into Python and subsequently analyse the data using a variety of tools.

    Outcomes:

    Participants will tackle 3 computational thinking problems. By the end of the workshop, they should be able to:

    • Install web scraping and Python text analysis modules like Scrapy and TextBlob.
    • Write Python functions and organise them into a module.
    • Analyse tweets, books and blogs for sentiment polarity (the general mood of the text).
    • Analyse tweets books and blogs for objectivity (the precise unambiguous use of language).
    • Deduce general themes of any piece of text using TextBlob functions.

    Python is an interpreted text based general purpose programming language and is also the only professional programming language that was designed with beginners in mind; it is intuitive and easy to use.
