ECAWA 2011 Annual General Meeting – November 25th

Members of ECAWA are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting of the Educational Computing Association of Western Australia (Inc) will be held on Friday the 25th of November 2011 at Wesley College in South Perth, beginning at 4.30 pm.

Associate Professor Dr Paul Newhouse, Director of the Centre for Science and Learning Technologies (CSaLT) at ECU, will be the speaker on this occasion:

Did you know that the Technologies area of the Australian Curriculum is in the early stages of development and that it has a Digital Technologies subject within it? The curriculum is being developed for K-12 and next year you should have an opportunity to review it. How does it relate to the ICT general capability? What is the intention of the curriculum?

Paul Newhouse is on the initial Advisory Group and is one of the writers for the initial advice paper for the curriculum and will try to answer some of these questions at the ECAWA AGM.
