My name is Amanda and I teach Mathematics. Due to a timetabling ‘glich’ several years ago, I was asked to teach the digital technology elements of the NSW Maths Syllabus to all Year 7 students at my school, one period a fortnight. It has been fabulous.
When creating lessons I follow my school’s scope and sequence for Maths, but also embed Computational, Algorithmic, Critical and Creative Thinking and Coding. I love it! I only see each class for this once a fortnight as we have a fortnightly timetable, but it is really nice to teach. As it isn’t a traditional maths lesson, the kids are not as anxious and generally more relaxed, and they engage in a different way.
I want to learn more about Cyber Security to embed a bigger variety of activities into my program.
I hope everyone really enjoys the course.
