    The digital era is upon us, and we must empower our children to be smart and responsible users of technology while avoiding the treacherous and harmful online world.  To address this urgent need, the global “DQWorld” online education program is pioneering efforts to promote student digital citizenship. DQWorld has been funded globally by over 100 major organisations including UNESCO, World Economic Forum, Singtel, Optus, Nanjing University, Stanford University.

    A FEDD Consultant will be present how to easily implement the DQ Program into your school and how to open constructive dialogue with students that will encourage all children to become DIGITAL LEADERS of tomorrow. An extensive set of resources are available free for teachers and students. These include access to the online videos, Teacher Workbooks, Student Workbooks, and research data is made available through individual reports for each school.

    Makerspaces are physical spaces that have been designed to support the maker in the design, creation and building of new projects and technologies.  Makerspaces are also about collaboration and working together to create products that service a need or identified problem. 

    Makerspace in STEM is the deliberate positioning of student learning in contexts that require the drawing together of skills and knowledge from the areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to create, construct, and critique a product.

    With the easy access to 3D modelling and low-cost tools such as robotics, 3D printers and rapid laser cutting technologies, schools can bring future-focused thinking and learning processes into the school environment.

    Come along and explore how to effectively engage in this learning space.  Hear best practice stories and learn about the skills required to achieve success in this space.
