Weaving Technology into the Fabric of the Classroom
with Associate Professor of Interactive Media and Design, Dr James Birt.
As an official event of this year's National Science Week, this workshop will gather together teachers from all over South East Queensland to listen to keynote speakers and participate in hands-on sessions revolving around the innovative use of technology in the classroom.
Keynotes will include subject matter experts from Bond University and CQ University speaking about future jobs, the value of Science, Technology, Art, Engineering & Math education, and the importance of pedagogy before technology.
Hands-on sessions will involve discipline experts providing practical experience with accessible augmented reality, virtual reality and mobile Internet of Things (IoT). The key takeaway for participants will be a greater understanding of placing pedagogy before innovative technologies and how this mantra is being applied at Bond University.
