DATTA Vic, in partnership with Environmental Education Victoria, have received support from the Google Educator Grant  and the DoE Strategic Partnership Program to deliver a FREE professional learning program for our members! 

The aim with this program is to upskill educators in how to engage young people in developing authentic digital design solutions for the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals. Some of the main aims are:

  1. To help teachers engage students in authentic problem solving, creative thinking and STEM

  2. To give participants confidence to deliver combined curricula, particularly at year 9 & 10

  3. To give participants a pathway to improve student engagement in design, digital technologies and environmental science 

  4. To aid teachers in expanding their design and digital literacy in order to pass on these essential future skills to their students 

The five, 2-hour, workshops will equip teachers with skills, confidence and knowledge of how to deliver and assess STEaM curriculum, utilise design thinking and create digital solutions to real world problems.

Teachers will learn skills in SketchUp (CAD program), Adobe Premier (Video editing program), Google Suite and a deeper understanding of how to tackle the design process while solving an aspect of a global problem. 

The program is based on the TecX student challenge, which is run by DATTA Australia every October, where students design solutions to the UN SDG of their choice - what teachers learn from this masterclass will help inform the creation of a Year 9/10 Digital Design for Sustainability unit of work, which can also lead into the participation of the TecX student challenge! 

Our funding is based on the program supporting as many below average SES and Rural/Regional schools in Victoria, hence why the program is online, so as to not incur many costs and reach as many teachers as possible!  


Thanks to Google for their invaluable support for this program through their 2023 Educator Grants.
