Online teach meet - indigenous education in design & technologies (pl2222)

When: Monday 16th May, 4pm - 5.30pm

Where: Online

Presenter: Martin Blake

Cost: $0 for members

DATTA Vic members - this free, online teach meet will explore ways to celebrate First Nations knowledge within the Design & Technologies curriculum. 

Learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Culture is a Cross-Curriculum Priority within the Victorian curriculum, but can be challenging to address it appropriately within a practical subject.

Martin Blake from Camberwell High School will take participants through a beautiful Year 9 unit of work (pictured above) that reflects and celebrates the lands of the Wurundjeri people. He will explore:

  • What is indigenous education 
  • Who to speak to before you start planning 
  • Importance of making it local to the local mob
  • Why is it tricky with technology based subjects
  • Sharing his D&T classroom project
  • Activity on brainstorming ideas 
  • Creating actions for teachers 

The session will include a discussion about approaches to inclusive Design & Technologies education, so if you've delivered a classroom project that engages your students in ATSI culture, please come ready to share!

Free and for members only, but registration is essential.

Thanks to the Department of Education & Training for their support for this event through their Strategic Partnership Program
