Masterclass

Zac MatthewsDuring this workshop we will be using the Scratch 3.0 coding platform to implement solutions for various real-world problems.

We will discuss the purposes of different approaches to coding and the ways these can be implemented across the curriculum, particularly in STEM disciplines.

This module will incorporate elements from the Teachers can Code program and build upon this with the perspective of teaching Digital Technologies at a high school level in the Pilbara.

We will also have look into modern, technology-assisted teaching practices, including the use of Learning Management Systems and the benefits of creating online video.
