Discover new Scienceworks student programs, exhibits and teacher professional learning opportunities. Find out about the range of programs available from CSER and join the community of teachers learning and teaching Digital Technologies.

Join Celia Coffa and Toni Falusi (CSER Project Officers) for the whole day or just the morning or afternoon. Celia and Toni will introduce the CSER online courses (MOOCs), explore the Digital Technologies Curriculum, work through some example activities and explain the other resources offered by CSER to support teachers to develop skills and knowledge in this area.

Activities will cover the concepts around which the Digital Technologies curriculum is based including data and algorithms. This will include no tech (unplugged) and tech (programming and robotics). Ideas will be explored that highlight the ability to include DT concepts across curriculum areas with a focus in 2019 on English and Mathematics learning areas.
