Courtney and Michael Weaver will present "Git on Board": Github in the Classroom" at the ECAWA 2022 State Conference.

Git on Board: Github in the Classroom

A Workshop

  • Have you ever had students working on code at school and at home, only for them to lose their prized USB?
  • Have they made a change to their code that has broken everything, and they didn’t save a copy of their previous version?
  • Do you want your students to leave school with a professional portfolio of their coding projects to help them gain a foothold in the industry?
  • How are you facilitating collaboration on a single codebase for students working on group projects? Github can help!

Used by over 80% of the software development industry, GitHub is the leading version control platform. It also facilitates collaboration on coding projects through its cloud-based hosting services.

GitHub is FREE for everyone and provides additional free services for students and teachers.

With version control becoming part of the ATAR curriculum for Year 12s in 2024, come and learn how you can implement GitHub in your middle and upper secondary classroom NOW!
