Teachers! Want to learn about the Digital Technologies Curriculum? Need someone to teach you all about code? Code Breaker Education is ready to teach you, and support you along the way.
I have been worried for a long time about how Victorian schools can possibly skill themselves up to deal with the new Digital Technologies Curriculum. I know the idea of code is daunting for many people, but the new curriculum means teachers need to be able to program, but also to teach programming.
The most important thing in teaching programming, especially at Primary School level is not to know everything (who does??), it’s to be enthusiastic, and willing to experiment. So the key thing is to show teachers that it can be fun, and that it’s not scary.
I would like to introduce you to Code Breaker Education – a joint enterprise between me and alumni of the John Monash Science School Computer Science Programme. I have collected a group of my former students who know all about code, but more importantly are passionate about Digital Technologies Education. They know that programming is challenging to start with. They know where you’ll get stuck and how to help you get over that learning curve.
They are educators, communicators, and programmers, and they can help get you ready, and confident, to teach the Digital Technologies Curriculum.
I’ve watched them teach and I am so proud of their teaching skills, their passion, and their professionalism. This is the Professional Development you need.
