    Technology Online Webinar: Engagement in technology through authentic learning experiences
    4 March
    Public discussion Created by Tessa Gray

    20 March 2019: Online

    Come along to this Technology Online webinar and hear Deidre Senior (Principal, Waitaki Valley Primary School) and Cheryl Pym (Accredited Professional Learning and Development Facilitator, Otago University) talk about the work they have been doing together with classroom teachers developing integrated programmes of learning using local curriculum that aligns with the technology learning area.

    This includes digital technologies (computational thinking for digital technologies and designing and developing digital outcomes) and also the three other technological areas (designing and developing material outcomes, designing and developing processed outcomes and design and visual communication) ie: Over the course of years 1–10, students learn in all five technological areas, developing their knowledge and skills in context. Register here.

    Anyone who attended last week's Technology Online webinar will know how good it was - where several examples of Technology in action were shared that had natural links to designing/creating/presenting using digital tools and technologies. 

    The resources for this webinar, including the presentation (PDF) can be downloaded from Technology Online

    These powerful examples show how primary children are responding to human needs in authentic contexts. What do you think? Do you have any questions for presenters Deidre Senior or Cheryl Pym?
