CANCELLED 1:1 the latest in trends, features & key requirements
Brief Outline: BYOD, BYOT, all aim to achieve the same outcome - 1:1 computing to improve student outcomes. But what are the latest features, specs and requirements that can ensure technology is an enabler in your classroom? Join Intel for a device agnostic approach to exploring 1:1 at your school.

Detailed Overview:
Participants will gain an understanding of the latest trends and technologies that can have a positive impact upon the classroom. After a brief introduction participants will get hands on with new technologies to see its potential in the classroom. The key features of the latest devices will also be explored demystifying concepts, technologies, terms and components with the aim of empowering participants to develop an understanding of what infrastructure can do to assist a drive towards technology for learning.

Some of the areas, questions and discussion topics that will be addressed:

1.       What is a processor and how does it impact upon device performance?

2.       What are the key technology requirements for learning devices and why?

3.       What is on the technology horizon and what opportunities does it provide for the classroom?

To takeaway, participants will also be given access to an extensive resource database to assist post session. This session will have a hands-on component

Supporting Teachers with Industry Partnerships
It's creative, it's stimulating and above all it's fun. Having a STEM professional come to you and either give you the good oil individually or join you in the classroom is a great way to add a new dimension to your teaching. This session panel session is featuring teacher and industry participants in the program talking about their experiences, highs, lows and what they get out of a partnership. A brief presentation explaining the essentials of CSIRO's ICT in Schools program followed by a Q&A. Short activities which demonstrate some of the activities that can be included in a classroom as part of a partnerships will also be included.

STEMing with OneNote
You will not be checking emails in this workshop! By the end of this workshop you will have a range of STEM-based activities and OneNote strategies for managing, delivering, assessing and recording a STEM unit.
After walking through the door you will complete a STEM-based mini-lesson, using OneNote to record and reflect on your learning. You will then learn how to set up OneNote for a STEM-based lesson/unit. To wrap up the workshop you will plan the structure of a OneNote for a STEM unit.
DO IT: Choose from a range of hands-on STEM activities where you make and tinker while recording and reflecting on your learning using OneNote. You will work collaboratively on research, record videos, and draw diagrams.
GOT IT: Learn how to set up OneNote notebooks effectively for STEM-based learning. Whether you are a 1:1 school, have just a few computers in your classroom or none at all, you can create a notebook to help implement your STEM unit.
GO FOR IT: Use one of your own STEM-based units, or one provided to you, and work individually or in groups to plan the structure of a OneNote so that it complements the unit rather than hinders it.
Prepare to have some hard fun!
