    • Online webinar: joining details after registration

    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.

      About the presenters

      Claire Andrewatha is a passionate and dedicated educator with over 10 years’ experience in Humanities and Information Technology, in Primary and Secondary settings. This combination of subjects helps her provide richness and depth when delivering curriculum and making links between concepts and real-world situations. As a teacher and administrator Claire has a solid understanding of the challenges and barriers facing staff and students when learning about and adopting technology. With the advent of COVID-19 we have become more reliant on technology as a tool to continue to deliver our lessons in a meaningful way. Claire has assisted students and teachers to develop a greater understanding of technology and its many applications in creative problem solving.

      Catherine Newington is the ICT Educator Specialist at Australian Computing Society. She leads the ACS national program to support schools to implement the Digital Technologies Curriculum. Working with schools she creates resources that target the curriculum and support content knowledge growth. Lessons promote skills such as authentic learning, global connections, critical and creative thinking, collaboration and student driven learning. These resources are available for free via the ACS ICT Educators Community of Practice.

      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.

      This event is made possible by support from the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
