Concord Golf Club, 190 Majors Bay Road, Concord.

Join us to see how learning with digital technologies can be included in the classroom. Learning technologies have provided new teaching platforms to build relationships within School communities by integrating into teaching and learning programs and transforming ICT curriculum and syllabus documents. Participants will also have the opportunity to experience technology tools and teaching strategies and exploring ways that encourage depth and motivation. 

 

The course aims to emphasise both networking and practical applications to develop and explore teaching strategies into digital technologies in the classroom. The course will outline key methods and outcomes from a series of recent published studies involving young students using science simulations on iPads to learn simple circuit building procedures and concepts. The studies adopted a problem base learning approach to investigate if and how a range of iPad simulations could help 5 and 6 year old’s learn how to build simple electrical circuits, and develop understanding of the science concepts behind each circuit design. A range of experiments were then carried out to determine if the procedures and concepts learnt could be transferred to equivalent tasks using real equipment. The presentation will include a discussion of the implications of these findings for teachers at all levels, who wish to use simulations on their classroom curriculum.

 

Presenters and Panellist:

  • Noelene Callaghan, Technologies Teacher in DoE (Department of Education) – Embedding social media in curriculum and school promotions.

  • Professor Garry Falloon, Macquarie University – Digital Technologies in the Classroom: Key outcomes from series of recent published studies.

Schools are in the business of providing a service – education – and while every school is led by a Principal, not all are principled in the same manner. While reports indicate that Principals and schools are coming under increased pressure, what is not reported are the opportunities Principals have to ensure a world leading education is offered. In this presentation, Cheryl challenges her audience to believe in the power of a principled Principal and provides a balanced pathway for effecting immediate change. It’s optimistic, it’s powerful and above all – possible.


Presenter:

Cheryl Lacey is a mum, educationist, speaker and author, and highly respected in her approach to agitating for change in Australian education. In Cheryl’s latest book, Marching Schools Forward, she challenges some of the basic concepts that underpin education and makes no apology for what are, sometimes, controversial observations.

Cheryl is recognised internationally for her work and continues in her quest for a world-class education for all Australians
