Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
As a result of the Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may find that learning activities and/or assessment items in some units you are studying have changed. These changes will not be updated in the published Unit Outline but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. The new learning activities and/or assessment items will continue to meet the unit's learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.
New learning activities and/or assessment items are available on your unit's UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Please contact your Unit Convener with any questions.
In this unit participants explore different curriculum structures and teaching approaches used in the key learning area of Technologies, with a particular focus on AC: Digital Technologies. Computational thinking, and the design and use of information systems, are foundational to the curriculum. The unit will also examine ICT capability and integration more broadly. Participants will apply their knowledge of teaching strategies and learning design to analyse and develop engaging teaching activities and to organise content into coherent programs. The activities will demonstrate effective use of ICT and approaches to support the development of literacy and numeracy.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the concepts, substance and structure of the content of the Digital Technologies learning area;
2. Demonstrate knowledge of teaching strategies appropriate to the Digital Technologies learning area;
3. Demonstrate application of teaching strategies, and use of curriculum, to design learning sequences and lesson plans in the Digital Technologies learning area; and
4. Demonstrate competence in developing general capabilities in students from diverse linguistic, cultural, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds, particularly those relating to ICT, literacy and numeracy.
One 1 hour lecture and one 2-3 hour tutorial and/or workshop on campus per week.
This unit is only available to students in the Master of Primary Teaching course.
