Computer Science plays an increasingly important role in every traditional learning discipline. As computers continue to influence every aspect of our lives, from entertainment through to work and learning, it is important that all teachers and students understand how simple CS concepts can provide us with new insights about what we know and understand.
The Iterate workshop has been designed around three distinct streams to give teachers and pre-service teachers targeted, simple and practical lesson resources and ideas, and to introduce them to programs that can help engage students in meaningful ways with IT in the classroom across multiple disciplines.
Date: Friday 1st June, 2012
Time: 8.30am (Registration) – 5.00pm
Location: INSPIRE, Building 25 Pantowara Road, University of Canberra, Bruce ACT
Registration includes workshop session, ready-to-go lesson resources for the classroom, morning/afternoon tea & lunch, 2012 Membership to InTERACT; and access to an online network of other Iterate participants.
Participation in any Iterate workshop gives you access to an active network of other educators, and an opportunity to apply for funding to support your own in-school initiatives for promoting computer science in the classroom. For more information and to register, visit CS4HS Iterate.
