Key to equipping the younger generations with the digital skills they need for future success is providing teachers with professional development opportunities to help them engage children with computational thinking and other digital technologies subject matter in the classroom. Higher Education institutions within the AARNet community are on the case.

For example, the Computer Science Education Research Group (CSERG) at the University of Adelaide has developed free online courses aligned with the digital technologies material developed for the Australian national curriculum.

These courses provide teachers with lesson plans and sample activities for integrating the digital technologies subject matter in the classroom in new and exciting ways.

New for 2015 is the Next Steps: Years 7 & 8 MOOC (started 1 May – not too late to join).

This free online course is designed for teachers of  Years 7 and 8, is open to all, and builds on the success of last year’s CSER MOOC for primary school teachers.
