Computer Science For High Schools – Workshop on Digital Technologies

The School of Computer Science, with the support of the Google CS4HS program ran The Third Workshop on Digital Technologies from July 11 to 13, 2016 and hosted 40 primary teachers, 15 middle-school and 15 high school teachers. The three day program provided opportunities to explore hands-on activities such as robotics, e-textiles, binary coding and algorithmic thinking, as well as groups mapping these activities to their Digital Technologies curriculum.

The CS4HS team, lead by Dr Cruz Izu, included Dr. Amali Weerasinghe and was helped during the hands-on-session by postgraduate students Shifa, Michelle and Gabriele, and undergraduate volunteers Julius, Christina, Ryan and Naomi.  This year we joined efforts with Emil Zankov, who ran CS@MOC in previous years and is now an IT teacher at Pedare College.

Many thanks to Google for supporting this program, which in now in his fifth consecutive year supporting local South Australian teachers to introduce Computer Science related resources to their schools.
