“The Digital Technologies curriculum is part of the new Victorian Curriculum. Foundation to Level 10 curriculum provides a single, coherent and comprehensive set of prescribed content and achievement standards. All government and Catholic schools are required to implement the Digital Technologies curriculum by the beginning of 2017”. http://www.digipubs.vic.edu.au/pubs/digitaltechnologies/digital-technologies-curriculum_where_to_start
The introduction of the Digital Curriculum presents a great opportunity for school libraries and library staff as they are ideally placed to not only provide a space for maker and STEM activities but lead the school in coding. The School Library Association of Victoria (SLAV) is responding to the implementation of the Digital Curriculum in 2017 by running Workshops and Conference Sessions to upskill Library staff so that the Library can offer resources and activities that support the rollout and integration of the Digital Curriculum and lead and support the instruction of students and staff in coding and digital technologies.
Basic: Morning Session: Introduction to Scratch: This workshop will give you a place to start with Scratch programming no matter your level of experience.
Advanced: Afternoon Session : Extending Scratch: You and your students know the basics of Scratch programming and want to know what to do next.
