Breakout Workshop

Pip Cleaves

Presented by

Pip Cleaves
National Education Manager, Code Club, Australia

We all know that computational thinking and coding is now a part of our classrooms.

With this new focus, comes a learning curve for many of us.

How can teachers learn the new skills needed to lead students to successful achievement of outcomes? What can teachers do to support students in this new space?

Code Club Australia is a not for profit organisation here to support every teacher and librarian across Australia to make a difference.

In this hands-on workshop, Pip Cleaves will lead you through the Code Club curriculum of student directed learning projects perfect for clubs and classrooms.

You’ll play with Scratch Coding and code a Microbit device, all the while discussing integration in your classroom.


  • Explore Code Club resources
  • Make an interactive Scratch Game
  • Code a Microbit device
  • Discuss the Digital Technologies Curriculum
