Deep dive into Digital Technologies integration and curriculum 1 (On Demand)
With the expectation of Digital Technologies being taught in all classrooms in 2020, it is important to have some tools in your toolbox to support this.
In this webinar, Toni will explore the question… How might digital technologies supersize our current teaching and learning programme?
This is part 1 of a 2 part series. This part will look at the first strand of the Digital Technologies curriculum: Progress outcome “Computational thinking”.
We will explore ways to integrate this strand into literacy, numeracy and almost every other curriculum areas as well as how digital technologies aligns with the key competencies. This webinar is designed to be as relevant and practical as possible with the aim for you to come away with a range of ideas and strategies to integrate digital technologies into your classroom. It includes ideas with little to no resources as well as some ideas to use with the resources you have.
What you'll learn
- An understanding of computational thinking, why it is important and how it fits in the classroom.
- Examples and lessons on how to teach computational thinking.
- Practical ideas you can use in the classroom right now whether you teach year 0 or year 8.
Teachers and school leaders who would like to develop a more practical understanding of how to implement the digital technologies curriculum and add value to their current teaching and learning programmes.
“A great start to our journey. It isn't nearly as scary as expected. Using many ideas we have already done for the last thirty years with a different slant and vocab. Thanks so much Toni. You are fabulous.”
-Year 1 & 2 Teacher, Hawkes Bay.
