    Part of our Online Teaching webinar series, this session highlights Learning From Home resources from the Australian Children's Television Foundation, as well as FUSE.

    Peter Maggs from the Australian Children’s Television Foundation will provide a brief snapshot of freely available ACTF resources that can be used for online learning. This will include clips, TV shows, teaching toolkits, cast webinar videos and curriculum activities. Peter will also try to answer any questions teachers may have.

    FUSE is the Victorian Department of Education and Training’s curated repository of curriculum-aligned resources suitable for flexible and remote delivery. It provides resources for all teachers, as well as parents and carers, to support remote learning. FUSE is also a terrific place to search for appropriate and educationally sound materials that will support your face to face teaching as students return to school.

      The second in our Digital Technologies F-10 webinar series, this session identifies connections between Numeracy / Mathematics and the Digital Technologies curriculum.

      There are many connection points between these two learning areas, from Algorithmic Thinking to Geometry to Data. Teachers of Mathematics and DigiTech can benefit from an understanding of where they intersect, and activities that can be used to integrate skill learning.

      Explore activities involving coding, simulations, turtle graphics and data. Further online resources will also be suggested.


      Who Should Attend?

      • Primary and Secondary teachers of Digital Technologies.

      • Primary and Secondary Maths teachers.

      The third in our Digital Technologies F-10 webinar series, this session identifies connections between Literacy / English and the Digital Technologies curriculum.

      While they may seem at first like different worlds, storytelling helps bridge the gap in both Primary and Secondary classroom settings. Yes, even with coding!

      Examine links like procedural texts, and deconstructing and reconstructing stories. Then explore activities and projects like choose-your-own-adventure games, stop-motion animation and immersive storytelling with AR/VR. Further online resources will also be suggested.


      Who Should Attend?

      • Primary and Secondary teachers of Digital Technologies.

      • Primary and Secondary English teachers.

        Part of our Digital Technologies F-10 webinar series, this session explores the coding in Python of a program that uses Natural Language Processing to give responses according to human sentiment.

        In this webinar designed for Secondary teachers, you will learn how to simulate conversations using some basic programming structures in Python and a library called TextBlob which performs sentiment analysis measuring both emotion (positive vs negative) and bias in user responses. By the end of the webinar, you will have seen the journey of building a Python chatbot through 8 simple programs. This knowledge will be easily transferable to the classroom as it comes with tutorials and assessments that are posted on the Digital Technologies Hub.

        In 1950, Alan Turing defined what it would take for a computer to be considered intelligent. It would be a system could converse with a human via text messages and appear to be entirely human. With the latest Python Natural Language Processing libraries we are closer to fulfilling this vision.


        Who Should Attend?

        • Secondary teachers of Digital Technologies.

        • Teachers of Upper Primary looking for new challenges to extend students.

        This industry partner workshop explores Premiere Rush, a simple to use video production tool from Adobe that allows teachers and students to use their phone, tablet device or their laptop/desktop to capture and edit moving and still images as well as audio to help tell a video story or share an idea in an engaging and creative way. It is a step up from Adobe Spark Video but nowhere near as complex as Adobe Premiere Pro.

        With so many classes happening online, Video literacy has become more important than ever and when we do get back to face to face teaching, video is such a great way to communicate. This online workshop by Dr Tim Kitchen from Adobe will go through the process of making a video story with Premiere Rush. To make the most of this session, go to your Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop App on your laptop and download Premiere Rush or ask your IT support to load it for you. Otherwise, you can download the mobile version via the Apple &/or Google Play Store.
