Breakout Presentation

Presented byMike Ross

Mike Ross

Level 3 Classroom Teacher, Ballajura Community College

Understanding how systems can be described in a graphical and logical manner is paramount to successfully completing the Computer Science units 1 & 3 courses at high school.

It is imperative that strong analytical skills are both enhanced by the teachers and developed by all students.

This presentation offers an insight into one teacher’s successful approach to teaching DFDs (Data Flow Diagrams).

If you are relatively new to teaching the discipline of Context & Data Flow Diagrams or if you have many years of teaching experience and would like to boost your student’s final ATAR scores you should find this presentation well worth while.


Intended Audience:

All those interested in STEM;  Senior Secondary (11 – 12)
