    Session                                           Description                                            Presenter(s)
Scratch          Scratch is programming language that is suitable for use in Information Software          Coral Shand and
1.2.1, 2.2.3,    and Technology and may be used in Technology Mandatory or Software Design                 Samantha
3.2.2, 3.2.4     and Development. The workshop will ensure participants are familiar with the              Pennington
                 interface of the software and the various symbols that are used to make use of the
                 standard programming control structures. Hands on activities will take place to
                 reinforce the programming concepts being discussed. The vast online resources that
                 are available to support learning and teaching with Scratch will be briefly explored.

Data             This session will explore ways of representing data visually to improve                   Martin Levins
Visualisation    understanding by going way beyond graphs and charts using easily accessed, free
for HSIE         and powerful applications. This course is suitable for HSIE teachers from Stage 3
2.2.3, 3.2.2,    to 6.
Find it fast     This session will help you become a Knowledge 2.0 mover and shaker! It’s not a            Judy O'Connell
and get things   one-size-fits-all environment anymore. Personalise your knowledge and
done:            information search strategy with the latest search tools and techniques for news and
Knowledge2.0     knowledge discovery. Find out about RSS news alerts from your EBSCO
4.2.5, 5.2.3,    databases. Explore some of the best search engines to improve your information
6.2.3            research techniques.
Why on earth     This session will introduce participants to the how's and why's of Twitter (and           Dominique Hearne
would I use      Tweetdeck); the concept of News Aggregation over Social Networking and how
Twitter?         you can integrate Twitter into your educational life in & out of the classroom. The
4.2.5, 5.2.3,    session will also look at some of the sites that students are directed to and use as
6.2.3            part of their HSC Preparation. The session will be cross KLA based and is aimed
                 generally toward secondary teachers, although the concept is of practical benefit to
                 Primary teachers also.
One Note for     This workshop will provide teachers with an overview of Microsoft OneNote and             Maxwell Fox
HSIE             how this application can be used to integrate the use of ICT in the classroom using
1.2.2, 1.2.4,    examples from Year 7 to 10 HSIE courses. Specifically, the session will comprise a
3.2.2, 3.2.3     brief theoretical perspective of how OneNote can support the design and
                 development of instructional scaffolds and then a "design workshop" where
                 teachers can create an instructional scaffold in OneNote that they can use in their
                 faculty. Time will be allocated to discuss how the "scaffolds" can be distributed to
                 and used by students. No OneNote skills are presumed.

Content          Teaching is fast becoming a "curator's" job. Content plucked from hundreds of             Jason Hando
Driven           sources and curated into a carefully planned environment provides the basis for
Learning         many lessons. Media such as video, info graphics and simulations are available for
Design           all subject areas. During this session, teachers wills be shown how to 'design'
2.2.3, 3.2.4,    learning for their students, who will benefit greatly if teachers develop their eye for
4.2.5, 5.2.3,    learning design. Based on a model of Content Driven Curation that has been
6.2.3            researched and proven to be effective. Particular examples from Primary School
                 education will be shown. All techniques can be used in K through 12.
Google Proof:    This session will guide participants into using example technologies to create            Dean Groom

Geotagging             Geo-tagging is the process of adding geographical identification or metadata to      Ellen Sheerin and
1.2.1, 1.2.3 2.2.3,    various media such as photographs. This data usually consists of latitude and        Anne Taylor
3.2.2, 3.2.4           longitude coordinates, though they can also include altitude, bearing, distance,
                       accuracy data, and place names. Once geo-tagged, the photos can be added to
                       Google Earth layers, used for Google lit trips, etc. This workshop will look at
                       the process of geo-tagging photos using a variety of tools, where the camera
                       does not include this information and how this can be used. You are welcome to
                       bring some of your own photos but a variety will be provided.

                             Testing the network
                       Participants would need to bring their own Windows XP based laptop, and
                       would need administrative rights to machine, to copy the Virtual image of
                       Windows 2003 server across onto. Participants should have a sound
                       understanding of network concepts and operating systems
Mobile                 Mobile technologies are the rage. Let's look at what they can do, how we             Martin
Technologies           manage them in a classroom and what pedagogies are successful                        Levins
1.2.1, 1.2.3, 2.2.3,
3.2.2, 3.2.4
Google Apps in         This session will look at a variety of Google apps and how they are being used       Ellen Sheerin and
Education              to assist in education generally. Examples of how these apps are being used in       Anne Taylor
1.2.1, 1.2.3           the classroom and how some schools have moved almost completely to web
2.2.3, 3.2.2, 3.2.4    based computing with Google apps will be provided. Having a Google log in
                       before the session will be helpful but not essential for practical aspects of the
Moodle: learning       This session will introduce participants to the new DET Web 2.0 tool 'Learning       Ben Crossing
Activity Wizard        Activity Wizard' (LAW) that enables teachers to design a variety of different
                       types of quizzes that are able to be integrated into the Moodle system. This
1.2.1, 1.2.3, 2.2.3,   course is aimed at people who have no experience in using LAW but have used
3.2.2, 3.2.4           Moodle a few times before this course. At the end of this workshop, participants
                       will have made a number of fully working quizzes that will be presented to
                       students/audience through Moodle/Learning Management System.
Using Document         In this session, participants will be provided with practical demonstrations to      Coral Shand
Camera                 illustrate how some teaching strategies and learning can be enhanced through         and Kai Liu
Technology in the      the use of a document camera. Examples will be provided from languages,
classroom              science and art, and participants will have the chance to try out their own ideas.
                       Most document cameras will link directly to data projectors and interactive
1.2.1, 1.2.3, 2.2.3,   whiteboards, and also provide teachers with an easy to use method of producing
3.2.2, 3.2.4           digital images for their lessons. Cameras are suitable for use in schools (primary
                       and secondary) and are considered essential equipment in many universities.
Industrial             Many IT teaches are interested in teaching Industrial technology-Multimedia as        Kelly Bauer
Technology:            an alternative to teaching IPT or SDD. This session will introduce teachers to
Multimedia Part        the structure of the course. Industrial Technology is 60% project and 40%
1 and 2                external exam, and this structure will be followed within the workshop.
                       Participants will look at requirements for folio, practical work and exam,
1.2.1, 1.2.3, 2.2.3,   including the new exam format. There will be a question/answer session for
3.2.3, 3.2.4           teachers and lots of resources provided for new teachers of ITMM. The
                       workshop will be divided into two 2 hour sessions.
