LEADING WELLBEING FOR STUDENTS, SCHOOLS AND SYSTEMS: TUESDAY 17 JULY: 2PM-5PM: Room 2051 Barr Smith South, University of Adelaide
Over the past decade, wellbeing has emerged as a rapidly growing issue in education attracting considerable interest, as well as numerous critiques. While the concerns are valid, this workshop will argue that wellbeing education has far more potential than critics suggest. Participants will consider how wellbeing education can positively impact students, teachers, and others within the educational community. Workshop participants will consider wellbeing programs blending evidence-based change with best practices, learning and teaching, whole school strategy, and evaluation. The workshop outlines the latest publications focusing on pedagogy, philosophical assumptions, and school culture and the implications for teaching, and professional practice.

STEM AND CODING CLOSDED.
“Programming, like problem–solving, is a skill that should be infused into all our school subjects from math and science to social studies and English.” (Marc Prensky, in From Digital Natives to Digital Wisdom p192). This masterclass will show teachers from middle primary to Year 10 how they can take students on a coding journey where they will learn the basics, but progress quickly to the use of more complex devices without having to master complex coding. Participants will undertake several coding activities so that they themselves might teach them to their students, but most importantly, will take away an understanding of how coding can promote the transfer of learning across and between subjects.
The program is designed to empower teachers to incorporate coding into their teaching without feeling challenged or inadequate. Optional workshops and on-site follow-up will be available to provide support to the teacher as he/she engages with coding technologies in the classroom for the first time.
All participants will receive a kit and a comprehensive teacher’s handbook outlining the coding journey from an introduction to coding in Adriano UNO through to multiple examples and exercises using several simple sensors
