About the course

Join Tim Schmitz from Scitech at the SSTUWA to explore the Digital Technologies curriculum, focusing on coding through a variety of apps and websites. This practical hands-on workshop looks at loads of free activities you can use to teach coding and computational thinking. You will get time to work with a range of programs on the day and are guaranteed to leave the session with a stronger understanding of how to integrate coding into your classroom. The activities range from simple 'unplugged' paper-based activities to apps and computer programs.
