Hi, I am a Support Teacher from Tasmania and I am currently working two days a week, supporting teachers in implementing Digital Technologies from Kinder to Grade 6. I look forward to furthering my knowledge and skills. The future of technology and kids is super exciting!
I am Digital Learning Facilitator in a primary school. My role currently involves implementing the new curriculum across P-6. I really enjoyed the opportunity to learn about Digital Technologies curriculum in the first MOOC, especially being inspired by other people's great ideas for bringing it to life. I am looking forward to being inspired and challenged further in this next step.
I just signed up for the MOOC. I am the ICT Administrator for Townsville Catholic Education. My team and I are committed to delivering the infrastructure and providing advice about devices to help teachers deal with digital technologies. I am doing the MOOC so I can experience first hand what our teachers are going to be doing. Looking forward to getting to know others on this same journey.
I'm new to MOOCs and have just joined since the Digital Technologies conference last week in Brisbane. Looking forward to learning heaps, creating actvities to share and seeing what others are doing.
I was blown away by the F-6 DT MOOC last year and am happy to be back for more. Queensland is starting to gear up for the introduction of the DT curriculum and I look forward to helping my colleagues embed thinking skills and practices in every-day learning.
