How are emerging technologies changing the world?  How do we as teachers keep up with the fast pace of change? How can we use the potential of these tools to engage our students in more active and personalised learning and deeper participating in collaboration?

These are the BIG questions that the DATTA Vic annual mid-year conference will tackle.  It's taking place on May 10 at Harvester Technical College, so save the date now!

Primary, Secondary, Tertiary and Community educators - join us to up-skill, network, create and innovate, and develop fresh approaches to teaching and learning in Applied STEaM.


BREAKING NEWS!

DATTA Vic are delighted to announce that Dr Scott Sleap has been confirmed as our keynote speaker. 

He will be presenting on How to Prepare Students for the Fourth Industrial Revolution 

In 2018, Dr Scott Sleap became the first STEM & Technologies teacher to win the coveted Prime Minister’s Prize for Science. 

As creator of the Cessnock Academy of STEM Excellence and the innovative iSTEM curriculum, his work has had such a profound effect on his school community that the NSW Department of Education has engaged him to expand his programs to other regions of NSW. He is now the leader of the $2.1M STEM Industry Schools Partnership (SISP) program that is rolling out STEM engagement initiatives to thousands of students across regional NSW.

Join Scott as he demonstrates how,  through innovative STEM teaching programs and school-industry partnerships, we as teachers can prepare our students for an ever changing, global and technology-driven future.


PROJECT SAVE THE WORKD AT MELBOURNE MUSEUM

We have a very special evening event for our conference delegates - Project Save the World at Melbourne Museum.

Join us for a presentation by Peter Murphy, STEM Leading Teacher at Northcote High School, who will discuss their Save the World initiative, a cross-curricular, multi-age, design thinking and DigiTech program which empowers young people to address the UN Sustainability goals. He'll explore the role of schools - and in the Technologies learning area in particular - in supporting students to engage in activism and choose their own preferred futures.

After that you’ll explore the Revolutions: Records & Rebels exhibition, learning more about the youth activists of the late 1960's and the power of music, fashion and new technologies to change the world.  Then you'll network with your teaching colleagues from throughout Victoria over a glass of wine in the inspiring surrounds of Melbourne Museum.
