      Please note, this workshop has been postponed, and may be rescheduled in webinar format. As schools continue to struggle with CRT shortages, we are experiencing lower than usual registrations for face-to-face events.


      Part of our Back to Professional Learning Together series, this 3-5pm afternoon workshop is for teachers able to dip their toes back into face-to-face PL in Term Two 2022.

      What will a classroom look like in ten years time? How will teaching and learning be impacted? If your school could go back in time would it have designed its classrooms differently?

      In this presentation Kevin Daly and Daryl English will speculate about the impact of future technologies and learning spaces. They will discuss how these will impact on both students and teachers in the near future and beyond, and provide practical advice on how schools might future-proof their investment.

        Session details

        OPTION 1: Your school's ICT plan: Asking the right questions

        Aside from staff remuneration (and new building costs), the average school’s ICT spend is usually the highest budget bottom line. How confident are school leaders in ensuring they are getting the very best from their ICT spend?

        This hands-on collaborative workshop will strengthen participants' understanding of relevant steps to shape the eLearning direction of their school. Participants will leave the sesion with resources and ideas to assist with their plans.

        Digital leadership can thus be defined as establishing direction, influencing others, and initiating sustainable change through the access to information, and establishing relationships in order to anticipate changes pivotal to school success in the future.” Eric Sheninger, ( 'Digital Leadership' and Principal of New Milford HS)

        At this workshop Daryl English will explore with leaders the following:

        • Does your school have a vision for a culture of digital learning? Is the vision one that is shared and understood by all members of your school community? Is the vision and practices that emerge from it embedded within the curriculum. Does the vision look to strong student voice for enhancement and refinement? Does your vision address and make provision for equity of access?
        • What core strategies, pedagogies and vision ensure students’ responsible and safe online behaviours?
        • Does a shared and agreed pedagogy drive the school’s decisions about the use of digital technologies?
        • What are some effective frameworks that can assist leaders in building school ICT goals and action plan?How might you as an ICT leader influence and encourage the community to take on board the ICT plan.
        • Where and how does the assessment of the spending take place?
        • How might a sustainable action plan be developed?
        • Where can leaders find excellent resources for staff professional development?

        Daryl English has held a range of eLearning related positions, as a teacher of ICT, Ultranet Coach, 1:1 Project Officer for the DET, and as an eLearning coach. His most recent and exciting work was as Assistant Principal 21st Century Learning at a large P-9 College in Melbourne’s West. Daryl is a highly skilled presenter in the field of Digital Education including presentations at BETT Singapore, Edutech Sydney and FutureSchools.


        OPTION 2: Getting hands-on with the DigiTech Curriculum

        This session is designed for teachers and curriculum leaders new to the Digital Technologies curriculum, or in need of a short refresher.

        The first half will include a brief overview of the Digital Technologies curriculum, how it is distinguished from ICT, and the three Ways of Thinking at its heart. Useful resources for next steps will also be pointed out.

        In the second half, attendees will be able to get hands-on with some authentic algorithm coding on the popular micro:bit classroom device.

        Note: Attendees will need to bring a laptop and charger. 

        Nathan Alison taught Digital Technologies, VCE Computing and Software Development in Victoria for 11 years before beginning work for DLTV. He brings a background in Computer Systems Engineering and years of hobby coding, as well as a keen desire to help teachers with more complex Computer Science concepts through clear explanations and relevant activities.


        OPTION 3:  Everyone's a DigiTech teacher: Integrating Digital Technologies across the learning areas

        This session is designed for teachers who are looking for refreshing ways to teach the Digital Technologies curriculum across other learning areas.

        The first half will include information on techniques to consider how to integrate the curriculum across other areas. Catherine will take you through considerations to get your ideas flowing!

        The second session will provide a selection of hands on ideas and resources that allow attendees to experience lessons (including some fun robotics – do not worry no coding skills required) that integrate the Digital Technologies Curriculum across a range of year levels and learning areas.

        Catherine Newington is the ICT Educator Specialist at Australian Computer Society. She leads the ACS national program to support schools to implement the Digital Technologies Curriculum. Catherine is a registered teacher with over 12 years’ experience in the classroom including 5 years as learning and teaching leader. She holds a postgraduate degree specialising in Education Technologies. This has tightened her knowledge of how pedagogical practices influence the potential of technology in education.

        Part of our Back to Professional Learning Together series, this 2-4pm afternoon workshop is for teachers able to dip their toes back into face-to-face PL in Term Two 2022.

        For teachers from primary and secondary, in this workshop Daniel unpacks our ideas and perceptions of video games to see how they can be a point of engagement, learning and new ideas in your classroom. You will come away with a range of practical and useful ways that you can use gaming in your teaching in ways that are not just a reward, and understand that video games as tools for learning rely strongly on teacher practice.

        Daniel will share with you hacks and strategies that will allow you to find the best ways for video games and video game culture to be a part of your teaching. He will share examples for science, humanities and the arts. From ways to creatively teach geography through video games to considering the way the first level of Super Mario Bros. can teach students critical thinking, design and storytelling skills.

        This is not just another gaming workshop. This is for non-gamers and gaming teachers alike. It pushes beyond safety, beyond screentime and into the worlds, characters and ways that you can level up your teaching through video games.

        TOPICS COVERED

        • Video games & learning: myths
        • The breadth of video games
        • What it can look like in your teaching
        • Video games as part of pedagogy
        • Practice examples
        • Hacks and strategies
