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

No one knows the current games, sites and social media world better than your students.

They experience the joy, fun and challenges of the digital world daily, and have insight and knowledge that we only get occasional glimpses of, when there is an issue or incident….and usually not a good one.

How can your students build a deeper knowledge of what they know and share for purpose?

This afternoon workshop outlines a process/ program/ guide to support your students to lead the investigation and analysis of the digital world at your school, voice their knowledge and ideas, and build direction and support for real action.

Their action can differentiate and creative.

Some schools have chosen media creation and delivery, hosting a parent information night or building knowledge of other/ younger students.

They can also influence and guide the direction of staff programs and school policy development.

Each school will do it differently but if allowing your students’ voice to be heard is part of your school's philosophy then this session will resonate.
