Maximising Learning using Coding and Makerspaces

Participate in a practical and interactive day of coding connected to purposeful learning experiences across different levels of the Victorian Curriculum. Improve your coding skills using a variety of apps and tools related to student needs at different stages of learning that every teacher must know. Discover how to plan and create an achievable and successful Makerspace that takes coding and robotics to another level, including engaging your school community.

Workshop Overview:

This workshop is designed for maximum hands-on experiences and engagement. It covers the basics of coding with opportunities for teachers to expand their skills.  Teachers will be immersed in a wealth of learning possibilities and understand first hand how coding is an important part of the new curriculum.  It is more than just the ‘fun’ aspect of coding.  It ensures teachers make connections to the practicalities and possibilities for student learning, engagement, assessment and curriculum outcomes.
