Digital Technologies are developing at a fast pace and schools need to ensure that their students are equipped for the ever-changing digital world. In 2020, the new Digital Technologies curriculum content will be available for all students from Years 1 - 13 and a successful BYOD programme will support your school to successfully prepare your students for their changing futures.
This seminar will help schools implement and develop their BYOD programmes, give advice on the most effective devices and provide resources to support your staff, students and the community. There will be an introduction to the new digital technologies learning areas with a focus on the key changes and resources to help schools understand and introduce the new content.
Please note: Our facilitators have asked all delegates to please bring their own laptop
