About the course

The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.

There is lots of talk about coding and computational thinking as skills for the future.
But how can teachers make sure that they are prepared to teach these skills?  This hands-on workshop will provide an introduction to some approaches, tools and resources for the classroom.  the course will introduce the basics of HTML, CSS and JavaScript, as well as object-oriented programming via Python.  Participants will explore each of these tools at a basic level and make use of online apps that make teaching with these tools straightforward.  Numerous examples will be provided for how these skills and tools might be deployed in different learning areas and at different year levels.

Delivery method: Live online event

The event will be three hours in duration via ZOOM and consist of live delivery of content at the specified time by a presenter and a host. You will also have an opportunity to interact with other participants and engage with the presenter online. Completing this course will contribute to three hours of professional learning and a certificate will be provided at the end of the session.
