The CSER Digital Technologies Education team is pleased to be working with The Smith Family to support schools in low socio economic areas to participate in the Young ICT Explorers competition.
The competition encourages school students to become creators and innovators of digital technology. It is a project-based competition encouraging students to develop a project using digital technology, for example they could identify a need in their School or Community and solve it with a mobile app, create a website, work with robotics and much more.
CSER project officers will be working with teachers from schools across NSW, WA, QLD, VIC and SA at events throughout May. The workshops will introduce teachers to the Digital Technologies Curriculum and some plugged and unplugged resources, with the aim of encouraging those schools to get involved in the Competition. This new partnership with the Smith Family represents a valuable step forward in our goal to support all Australian teachers to engage in Digital Technologies.
