We offer a number of options for teacher PD. We can tailor programmes to suit your needs. We cover coding and robotics projects for both extra-curricular programmes and to integrate the new Digital Technologies subject with existing subjects such as English, HASS or Science.
Our PD programmes can cover:
- how to use the technologies e.g. coding with Scratch, Makey Makey, coding with Python, programming robots
- how to integrate Digital Techologies with existing subjects
- how to run extra-curricular coding and robotics clubs during lunchtime

I am delivering a free web conference with the Queensland College of Teachers on Monday 7 November 3.30-4.15pm (Brisbane time): http://www.codingkids.com.au/blog/2016/9/29/qct-pd-web-conference This web conference is accessible by anyone, not just Queensland teachers.
We also run weekly webinars during the school term for 1 hour a week for 8 weeks covering similar topics: Scratch, Makey Makey, Python, robotics, the new Digital Technologies subject and enrichment programmes.
