One of six parallel conferences running at the National FutureSchools Expo.

This conference focuses on the Professional Development for teachers of Australia's new Digital Technologies Curriculum, with a focus on how to teach children to code.



The Digital Technologies Curriculum will lay the foundations for a new generation of Australian’s who will give the term ‘Digital Natives’ a whole new meaning. But, what challenges does THIS generation of teachers face in delivering this new subject, and how are we going to overcome them?

The Digital Technologies Curriculum Conference is a fresh, new part of the FutureSchools experience – a conference designed to explore these challenges and to give K-12 teachers a forum to collaborate and engage with fellow teachers across Australia who are doing great work in pushing STEM, computational thinking and coding beyond the classroom…
