    Python is an interpreted text based general purpose programming language and is also the only professional programming language that was designed with beginners in mind; it is intuitive and easy to use.

    This workshop is a hands on introduction to Python in the classroom. Participants will be guided through a learning sequence that covers the fundamental programming concepts such as variables, loops and if statements and then apply this knowledge to solve 3 computational thinking problems.

    The workshop is targeted at teachers of Years 7-10. 

    Outcomes:

    By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:

    • Describe and illustrate key concepts like data types variables, loops
    • and if statements
    • Apply loops and if statements to create programs that draw shapes as well as programs that do mathematical computations (times tables and factorisation)
    • Use native python string functions to manipulate text and perform capitalisation, concatenation and various other string formatting operations
    • Use the random function to create dice games and guessing games

    The aim of this all-day hands-on session is to help teachers make the most of Adobe Creative Cloud and associated Adobe software in the learning and teaching process with a focus on enhancing 21st century digital literacy, communication and creativity skills in alignment with the Victorian & Australian Curriculum. All Victorian Government Secondary Schools now have access to the Adobe Creative Cloud applications through the EduStar portal and most Victorian Independent and Catholic schools also have access. No previous experience with Adobe software is required and resources will be provided for both new and experienced Adobe users. This event will be facilitated by Dr Tim Kitchen, Adobe’s Senior Education Specialist for Asia Pacific and will aim to cover a mix of the following resources and educational concepts:

    • Photoshop tips & tricks for teachers
    • Working with the free Adobe Spark creativity tools
    • Multimodal Text with Adobe Muse & Adobe Spark
    • Flipped Learning with Adobe Presenter, Adobe Spark & Premiere Clip
    • Basic Video production with Adobe Premiere Clip & Premiere Pro
    • PDF & document management with Adobe Acrobat
    • Simple animation in the classroom with Adobe Character Animator
    • Classroom resources on the Adobe Education Exchange
    • New research in teaching Gen Z students

    This workshop is for teachers who already have a solid grasp of basic programming concepts: variables, iteration (loops) and conditionals (if-else statements).

    It is targeted at Secondary School teachers.


    Object Oriented is a distinct way of organising code. It is required in the Year 9/10 Digital Technologies curriculum, as well as in VCE Software Development.

    This workshop will provide:

    • fun and straight-forward ways to bring this programming paradigm to your students,
    • hands-on practice in both Python and JavaScript (you will be able to choose one or the other),
    • an overview of other languages built for Object Oriented code,
    • a glimpse into Object Oriented code for popular electronics and robotics: Arduino and BBC micro:bit.
    Note, advanced concepts beyond curriculum requirements (such as Inheritance and Polymorphism) will not be practised in this workshop, but will be briefly touched upon.


    Outcomes:

    By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:

    • explain the basics of Object Oriented programming and introduce the concept to their students,
    • define an object using Python or JavaScript,
    • instantiate an object multiple times using Python or JavaScript,
    • use the above skills to write and organise code for data management or games.
