We had an excellent group of teachers and school leaders for our twilight seminar on the technologies curriculum and coding in schools on the 11 and 15 February 2016. Both nights were fully booked with over 500 teachers attending these events. I shared my research on the use of technologies in schools and a range of ways to introduce coding and computational thinking.
I was supported by an amazing team of colleagues Ian, Travis, Lauren, Mandy and Karen. A huge thank you to the presenters who flew in from Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne to present at these two events. We had representatives from local ,state and national organisations to provide support for our teachers in WA.
Thanks to ECAWA, Digital Careers, CodoDojo, Young ICT Explorers and West Australian Curriculum and Standards Authority for supporting us in this event. We are able to share some great opportunities available to teachers and schools as they introduce the technologies curriculum and the exciting field of coding in their schools.
