Here you can learn about and book our Edtechs Academy Workshop and Professional Development sessions - We offer courses for School Leaders, Teachers and for Students.

This year we are collaborating with the amazing team from Invent to Learn, and together we offer another series of workshops with Dr Gary Stager.

The co-author of “the bible of the maker movement in schools,” 1:1 computing pioneer, and popular speaker, Gary Stager, returns to Australia for another series of exciting hands-on workshops. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from an education pioneer! Learn to learn and teach with Hummingbird robotics, littleBits, Scratch, Snap, Turtle Art, wearable electronics, microcontrollers, micro:bits, digital paper craft, programmable toys, and other exciting new materials in a project-based context.

This year we are offering two sessions;

Teaching Coding, Physical Computing, and Computational Thinking.

Learn how a project-approach to computer programming, robotics, and physical computing can serve a diverse student population while developing your own skills. This workshop will explore powerful ideas from computer science and engineering that may be employed in the solving of problems across the curriculum.

Invent to Learn Masterclass

Join colleagues for a day of hard fun and problem solving — where computing meets tinkering, engineering, and design. The workshop begins with the case for project-based learning, making, tinkering, and engineering. Next, discuss strategies for effective prompt-setting, powerful ideas from the Reggio Emilia Approach, breakthroughs in science education, progressive education, and how the global maker movement combine to create rich learning experiences.
