Event description

Description

"Teaching Y2K Kids"

Join us for this exciting event, exploring the changing landscape of technology education. This workshop is suitable for teachers with a passion for technology and in particular focused on teachers of Year 7&8 technology.


As specialist teachers we are often faced with students who have been working in MLE/ILE’s, students who have been working on individual learning plans with high levels of self-directed learning. These students often appear less compliant and less able to work within structures. This day will begin to unpack who these students are and how we can best enable them to learn.


During the day we will have a few whole group activities including a keynote from Neville Myers and a focus on implementation of the Digital Technologies Curriculum. There will be a number of break out sessions to hear from different NZ teachers who will share their interpretations of the NZC Technology and how it works for them as well as opportunities to hear from technology industry leaders.


This is the first of a number of learning opportunities for Year 7&8 technology educators. These sessions have been developed in response to the needs identified by the Technology Advisory Board Survey in December 2017. The content and delivery will be reviewed after each session to ensure we are providing learning opportunities that suit the needs of the cluster.. Each session will offer a range of different learning opportunities across a range of topics including workshops, discussions, quickfire presentations and hands on activities.
