The September Monthly Meeting will be held Wednesday September 4 at 7pm

Guest Topic: Australian Computer Society ICT Educators

Our guest speaker for September is Catherine Newington who leads the ICT Educators Program and is the community’s moderator. Catherine is a registered teacher with over 12 years’ experience in the classroom including 5 years as learning and teaching leader.

ACS ICT Educators is a program that supports teachers to build confidence and knowledge to deliver the Digital Technologies Curriculum across Australia. ACS has created a selection of resources that target F-10 teachers. Resources are aimed at teachers to help them unpack the curriculum topics and help them understand the curriculum expectation at each year level. Lesson plans and units of work showcase ideas on how to implement the Digital Technologies Curriculum. These lessons implement skills such as critical and creative thinking, collaboration and student driven learning.
