    Join us to be part of a discussion around Digital Technologies curriculum implementation in the Early Years. Topics and questions will include:

    • What are you doing in the Digital Technologies space?
    • How did remote learning affect your teaching of the DT and technologies learning areas?
    • What support are you looking for 2021 to make changes or develop Digital Technologies?

    We invite you to consider these questions before the event and to be actively involved during the webinar.

    Following these initial discussions, Catherine and Claire will share a range of resources that have been tried and tested in classes. Ranging from examples with robotics to unplugged activities that can be integrated with topics you may be already teaching. Takeaway these ideas and resources to immediately use back in your classroom, and modify to suit your teaching needs.
