I'm Ken Price, and I work in Curriculum Services with DoE Tasmania. I've taught computing in various forms over many years, and I'd like to help my colleagues in teaching Digital Technologies. I'm involved in several professional associations related to computing in schools. I'm particularly interested in pedagogies for digital technologies, esp in relation to metaphor and approaches that relate generalisation and abstraction to concepts familiar to students.
Hi, I am a high school information technologies teacher at a girls' school in Brisbane. I am keen to keep girls interested and involved in STEM, and I'd like to get more students choosing digital technologies as an elective from year 9. Hopefully by providing a year 7 & 8 course that is fun and engaging. #networking

Instructions for getting ready for school
This picture instruction can be jumbled up and the kids can put them in the right order.
Hi everyone! I'm Nicola from Code Rangers (@coderangersau). Last year I started running workshops for children to learn coding before and after school, mostly stage 3 students. As they learn more and more about visual programming we're all ready for the next step, so I'm looking forward to taking this course and learning about the best way to teach other programming languages. I'm also excited to be part of a community interested in digital technologies and sharing their ideas and resources.
Hi I am the Curriculum Leader for IT and Program Leader of e-Learning. I completed the previous course P-6 and am very keen to work through this one. We have already stared implementing the Digital Technologies syllabus with our Year 8's this year so we are excited about exploring some different ideas for this subject. #networking
HI I am a high school teacher at Marymount College in Burleigh Waters Qld. I want some help unpacking the new digital technologies curriculum and guidance with creating unit outlines and assessment. One of my goals this year is to increase the number of students who choose digital technologies as an elective from year 9-12 in particular girls.
Hello, I am an upper primary teacher in a small, two classroom school about an hour from Adelaide. I feel as if I am on a rather steep learning curve… but am certainly enjoying the opportunity to learn and develop my skills in this area.
Greetings from Hobart Tasmania. My name is Peter Lelong and having enjoyed the CSER F-6 MOOC I have come back to participate in this new one created by the team from Adelaide University.
I work in the Tasmanian Catholic Education Office supporting teachers in the use of Digital Technologies across the curriculum.
I look forward to working with and meeting others in this community.

Hi, I am technology teacher in a P-12 college south of Brisbane. I teach years 10-12, but will be overseeing the implementation of the Digital technologies and Design and technologies subjects into our middle school next year.
I'm a Science and ICT teacher at a Catholic school in Canberra. I am looking forward to hearing everyone's ideas about implementing the Digital Technologies curriculum, especially the choice of programming languages to suit the curriculum. All of the streams sound very interesting, so I'm worried I'll go overboard.
