ECAWA, the Educational Computing Association of Western Australia (Inc), as an association of volunteers, is committed to furthering the advancement of education by promoting the use of Information and Communication Technologies as powerful aids to learning.
ECAWA supports all educators teaching the Western Australian Curriculum: the P-10 subject: Digital Technologies, the senior secondary computing subjects (Applied Information Technology and Computer Science) and all who are working with the ICT Capability in all courses and subjects.
ECAWA also supports educators in all areas who are looking for ways of integrating technology into their learning and teaching programmes in meaningful and innovative ways.
As a part of the STEM Consortium, ECAWA supports teachers to engage in projects that integrate technology in STEM and STEAM projects.
ECAWA provides professional learning for educators in the digital technologies curriculum and runs regular professional learning events in coding, robotics, virtual reality, design and computational thinking to help teachers prepare students for the future.
ECAWA members belong to a network of creative and innovative educators across WA, and with close links to similar associations in each State and Territory of Australia through ECAWA’s founding membership of the ACCE – the Australian Council of Computers in Education, and with strong links to international groups.
