HI Deb, Welcome to Port Macquarie #CSERdigitaltechnologiesMOOC
I am completely new to delivering Digital Technologies and am desperately trying to get myself up to speed and ready for week 1. I come from 17 years of teaching in the Manual Arts & D&T space in NSW.
Can anyone give me some good tips/resources for the first week to engage my 3 year 7 classes? At this stage I feel as though I will be getting off on the wrong foot come lesson 1.
Hello MOOC! My name's Isaak, I'm a first year maths teacher at St Joseph's in Katherine. My background is Physics, Philosophy and Comp Sci and looking forward to learning how to teach CS in high school.
Three areas where Digital Technologies have benefitted society.
1.Medicine – using technology to create prosthetic limbs for the victims of war.
Technology is used to determine best practice for cane farmers in the Ingham district.
3. Humanitarian work.
Using data to help target countries affected by diseases/famine etc.
I am a secondary school teacher, trained in English and Legal Studies. I have been thrown in the deep end with Digital Technologies and I am enjoying the challenges that this brings.
I look forward to learning more so that I can effectively teach my year 7, 8 and 10 Digital Technology classes.
Bring it on!
#DataTask1 Find a problem in your daily life and think about how Digital Technology could solve it. Write down an example solution.
With a busy working life I have started online shopping. I always look for specials, but I would like to compare the cost of my shopping basket between stores. I would create an App where I can enter a shopping list, and compare the cost between local shops, before placing the order.
