Being a STEM component, Numeracy provides an essential foundation for an Australian future that is set to revolve around high level technology and high order thinking. What an opportunity educators have to prepare their students in a whole new highly motivating way due to the wonderful digital technologies tools now available. These tools work hand in hand with all areas of Numeracy and open the students minds to how much fun and stimulating Numeracy can now be.
Why the Numeracy Curriculum needs to integrate Design and Digital technology.
To motivate the general primary school classroom teacher to explore the use of digital tools in the Numeracy classroom we need to provide many examples of how the digital age is heavily affecting the students’ world. Through discussion, collaboration, thought provoking research and motivating video we open the teachers minds to power of the new tools and their simple integration into Numeracy.
Explore and Play
There is an amazing variety of digital tools now available to schools and to students to motivate them to think creatively, critically and develop high order problem solving skills which stimulate amazing Numeracy development. Our consultant will lead the teachers through a journey of motivating, fun and practical examples how to integrate the tools into every Numeracy lesson.
Create and Prepare
So many Professional Learning workshops excite and motivate teachers but do not encourage or develop the opportunity for teachers to spend time creating a series of lessons/ activities to be able to take back to their classroom and immediately implement into the classroom. This is why Practical PD believes we are so renowned and acclaimed as we ensure every teacher who attends the workshop creates amazing learning opportunities to enhance their Numeracy classroom using motivating digital tools that integrate with the Numeracy Curriculum.
