Some thoughts on making AIT work for my class and your class

Presenter: Chris Carmody of  Willetton Senior High School

.

Applied Information Technology has been with us for over 5 years now and has also been through a recent syllabus tune up.

Students who take AIT expect to have a very hands on computing experience, and generally are not the strongest academically.

The reality is that when students are completing AIT at a stage 2 and 3 level, their success in this course is measured by how well they score in their final WACE exam.

Therefore how can we maximise our student’s enjoyment in AIT and ensure they achieve the best academic results they are capable of?

The first part of the session will involve input from the presenter, and in the second part, the presenter will be eliciting input from participants.

About the Presenter:

Chris Carmody has been teaching Computing related subjects since 1988. He says he has been fortunate to work in some very good schools, with the last 12 years at Willetton Senior High School.

Chris has enjoyed participating on the AIT CAC panel when we revised AIT.

With all his years of experience teaching an upper school Computing subject Chris says he still finds it a huge challenge to motivate his students to maximise their potential.
