Cross Curriculum digital resources
The Australian Curriculum brings with it explicit requirements for cross-curriculum content. It also provides opportunities to reshape classroom teaching and learning around the natural connections between mandatory subjects. Bill will show and discuss a range of websites and digital tools that are ideal jumping-off points for working with teachers across all faculties, along with some ideas about how to approach cross-curriculum lesson and assessment design using game mechanics.

Are you digitally literate? Prove it!
Digital literacy is a requirement for all students today. But in a context where children's experience and interaction with online culture is vastly different to most adults, how do we as educators identify children's knowledge/skills gaps and then provide meaningful education?

Code Factory

Casula High School is on a journey, transforming the way we teach to better fit the way our students learn.

Imagine walking into a classroom, but it isn’t a classroom. Students are working in pods, collaborating, problem solving and tinkering. In the corner a group of students celebrate as they light up their first LED with code they scripted themselves.

Casula Code Factory is a 21st century collaborative STEM learning space tailored for our student’s future success. This space will transform existing programs at our school, deepening their reach within the curriculum and increasing the engagement of our students.

The factory will bring together three elements. Professional computer hardware with a proven lifecycle, expert external training to facilitate lasting knowledge transfer and class sets of integrated development boards that will allow the embedding of the pedagogy into the existing curriculum and timetable.

CANCELLED Robotics

We don’t know exactly what the future holds for our students, but we can equip them with the tools and skills to tackle these eventualities. Working from a problem/design based approach to learning, this session will focus on giving participants an introduction to the world of physical computing using an Arduino compatible board, and then collaboratively designing lesson experiences that engage, equip and inspire. Participants will also complete a simple project empowering them with the confidence to implement in their classroom. To takeaway, participants will gain a window in to online resources to assist the integration of Physical Computing Technologies as well as a problem/design based approach to learning across their school. This session will have a significant hands-on component, with participants walking away digitally and pedagogically empowered.

NB Participants will be required to have a computer to participate fully. Please make sure you have donwloaded the Arduino 1.6.7 IDE from here www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software and then installing both the 'Curie' and 'i586' boards by going to Boards >> Boards Manager within Arduino 1.6.7.

Flipped Learning in a BYOD environment
Flipped Learning in a BYOD environment - Karabar High School: our journey

In 2016 Karabar High School has embarked on a journey of pedadgogical change - we are embracing the Flipped approach in BYOD classrooms. This session will look at how the school community has successfully embedded this approach into existing teaching and learning programs and structures, including a 'warts and all' analysis of some of the challenges we have faced along the way. I would also like to invite attendees to share their stories, from whatever stage of implementation they are at, to encourage some sharing of experiences and strategies for Flipped Learning.

Robotics - Prototyping with Breadboards

In this hands-on workshop, participants will be introduced to prototyping using breadboards. These activities can be incorporated into science, physics and STEM classrooms or maker spaces. Participants will learn how to connect simple breadboard circuits comprising LEDs, resistors, and switches. They will explore more complex projects involving sensors for detecting and seeking obstacles, and controlling motors. There will be a discussion on how these skills can be further evolved into embedded and robotics projects incorporating Arduino and Raspberry Pi, ThinkerSheld and lots of other equipment. An interactive showcase of projects will be available, including a simple motor, steady-hand game, dimmer switch, a lie-detector, a weather station, and various robots.
