Yay Nick and Katrina!

The University of Adelaide and Google today announce a free open online course to help primary school teachers across Australia bring computer science and computational thinking into classrooms.

The course, to be available from March 2014, will help provide resources and example learning activities for the Digital Technologies section of the new national curriculum, from kindergarten to Year 6.

To be announced today at a Digital Technologies Curriculum Summit hosted by Google in Sydney, the project is bringing together the expertise of a network of teachers and industry representatives to develop materials that will help teachers meet the learning objectives of the new curriculum.

“Our ultimate aim is to enable Australia’s future as creators of digital technology, not just consumers,” says project leader Associate Professor Katrina Falkner, Deputy Head and Director of Teaching in the University’s School of Computer Science.
