As part of the Great Victorian Coding Challenge for Education Week, 2015, a series of webinars will be delivered by school-based coding experts during Term 2. These webinars will take place on Blackboard Collaborate. Each webinar will be short, easy-to-follow, and will give teachers the chance to test their own skills and ask questions before attempting the challenge with their class.
The webinars will offer an introduction to Scratch by walking teachers through the three different challenges, providing tips for introducing the program to children and suggesting ways in which the challenge can be incorporated into the existing curriculum.
All teachers who attend a webinar as part of the Great Victorian Coding Challenge will receive a Certificate of Professional Development.
There are three upcoming webinars to choose from:
Further information about the webinars will be sent directly to all teachers who register their students to take part in the Challenge.
