Digital Technologies: Coding and Computational Thinking with Python Turtle

Posted on

The School of Education is delighted to announce a Computational Thinking Workshop for middle-primary to early secondary teachers, presented by Dr Martin Cooper.

Event details

Join us on Thursday 28 February 2019, for a 90-minute workshop which highlights computational thinking as a key idea in the Digital Technologies subject in the Australian Curriculum. Sessions will include breaking down problems into parts, organising data, interpreting patterns and designing and implementing algorithms.

Date
Thursday 28 February 2019
Time
10 am - 12pm
Venue
Building 301 Room 112FF, School of Education, Curtin University, Kent Street, Bentley WA 6012.
Cost
Standard $70 , Curtin Staff and Students $35

This workshop’s core idea is Computational Thinking and the control structures of programming sequence, decision and iterations.  It consists of a 2 hour face-to-face, session. Participants will be encouraged to explore coding and then develop classroom plans for their own students. Your involvement will include working in a familiar coding environment (Scratch, Python or any best known to you) to complete your own project, developing confidence with programming or coding.  The workshop will offer reflections, discussion, exploring resources and developing a personal plan.
