All Teachers
This webinar is designed for teachers who are passionate about improving students’ digital proficiencies needed for navigating the technological world. Digital proficiency is the ability to use a range of platforms and programs to communicate, find information, solve problems or complete tasks.

Tuesday 22 MAY 2018

3.30pm-4.30pm AEST

The focus of this webinar is to demonstrate practical strategies for delivering the digital technologies curriculum that explicitly develops students’ future skills. Participants will explore the principles of programming and build the skills necessary for flying and using drones in their teaching. Please, join Travis Goulter from Ormiston College to hear and see first-hand how students from the primary years are learning and developing their coding, computational and problem thinking skills. Travis will demonstrate multiple platforms for flying drones and have you launching your drone in no time.

Explore the benefits of digital proficiencies, so that students are provided with:

  • active rather than passive experiences
  • computational and problem thinking skills and activities
  • multiple platforms for developing skills
