Join us for the first DLTV webinar for term 2.
Adriana Pinder, Professional Learning Coordinator from ACHPER Victoria, Jane McPherson eLearning Coordinator at Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School and Catherine Newington from ACS combine in this webinar to focus on the implementation of the technology (ICT) within Primary PE classes. They will discuss how to start out using ICT to support student learning and assessment, and where to next.
Strategies and ideas explored aim to ensure alignment with the PE curriculum and current pedagogical practices. This webinar will provide ample opportunities to ask questions regarding how you can incorporate ICT into your PE classroom.
