Please note, this workshop has been cancelled. It may be rescheduled in Term Four, or converted to an online format. As schools continue to struggle with CRT shortages, we are experiencing lower than usual registrations for face-to-face events.


As part of celebrating Science Week at KIOSC, DLTV presents two 1-hour sessions on Digital Technologies + Science and Digital Technologies + Maths.

Whether playing a game, flying a drone, or just being on social media, today’s students are constantly interacting through the digital world. They engage heavily with technology in and outside of school, and teachers need to be harnessing this engagement to improve learning in all classrooms. We are no longer in the era of DigiTech being taught just in the computer lab.

Participants in these one-hour workshops will explore why Digital Technologies is a vital area for their students and will develop their ability to articulate the Digital Technologies and Digital Literacies Curricula and be an exemplar of change within their school. A curriculum walk-through with practical activities to enhance concepts will be undertaken. Opportunity for further investigation relevant to the teachers of Mathematics and Science will be provided.

Pedagogical models will be used as a self and whole school reflection tool for participants. How Digital Technologies and the Digital Literacies can be used across the Mathematics and Science subject areas will be a feature of the workshop. Excellent resources exploring career opportunities for students considering a career in Digital Technologies fields will also be shared.

This workshop is specifically designed to expand and sharpen knowledge, skills and dispositions of the Digital Technologies curriculum and best practice pedagogy in Science and Mathematics.
