Join MacICT Manager Cathie Howe for her new workshop on Design Thinking and Digital Learning Design, coming up on Monday the 23rd November!

Integrating Design Thinking into Digital Learning Design
Fostering creativity in BYOD Environments

During this course, participants will be introduced to design thinking and shown how it can be integrated into digital learning design using the powerful cloud-based technologies of Google Apps for Education or Office 365. Design ideas and tips for creating successful digital learning activities will be demonstrated and participants will have the opportunity to explore web tools and apps that support digital learning. Participants will begin to design their own digital lesson or series of lessons using Google Apps or Office 365 incorporating design thinking.

MacICT is excited to announce our FREE Google sponsored workshops on Computational Thinking for Early Stage 1 to Stage 4 teacher next Term!  

Computational Thinking: What is it, and why is it important for your students?

Download the flyer: http://bit.do/ctflyer

Definition: Computational thinking is a problem-solving method that is applied to create solutions that can be implemented using digital technologies. It involves integrating strategies, such as organising data logically, breaking down problems into parts, interpreting patterns and models and designing and implementing algorithms. (Australian Curriculum: Technologies – newly endorsed in NSW)
Computational Thinking is an integral component of the newly-endorsed (in NSW) Digital Technologies Syllabus, but what is it? In this course you will have the opportunity to learn the elements of computational thinking, how they relate to your current teaching environment, and how you can incorporate them into your day to day teaching.

You will use a combination of apps, software and off-computer activities to develop skills and understandings of computational thinking and learn how to integrate it into your current units of work.

“Computational thinking is recognised as a skill set that every child needs to develop. It is related to a number of 21st century competencies including problem solving, critical thinking, productivity and creativity.” EDUsummit 2013
