One of five 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?

Teaching Kids to Code 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…
