From the Desk of DLTV’s President
Ben Gallagher

Hi all,

In this final week of Term Two, I’d like to take the opportunity to communicate a few happenings at DLTV as we prepare for a well earned break.

Firstly, congratulations to David Ebert from Glen Eira College who won our $150 Pakronics voucher for contributing to our PL survey. I would also like to thank all the other people who took the time to complete the survey, it was very much appreciated and your input is invaluable to us.

Now is the time to start thinking about renewing or becoming a DLTV member in 2023. Our membership base allows us to provide the following valuable resources like these as well as providing services and discounts to schools.

We will be promoting membership and offers in a few of our next newsletters and at our website. We have found from experience that a school membership represents the best value, so we’ll have some offers on this during the next semester. Access great benefits available to members here.

DLTV had a very strong presence at the National Education Summit held on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 June. Thanks to Margo, Maria and their team for managing such a great event. It was fantastic to reengage with educators face to face.

DLTV were heavily involved in the Classroom of the Future project and we encourage you to take a look at the new site. This resource will be updated regularly between now and the next Education Summit in 2023.

We would like to thank the following people on our Committee, staff and others who presented at the Summit:

  • Craig Nicholls from Melbourne Girls’ Grammar School
  • Claire Andrewartha from CS in Schools
  • Martin Richards from Education Services Australia
  • Catherine Newington from Australian Computing Society
  • Nathan Alison, Kevin Daly and Daryl English from DLTV

Hopefully I haven’t forgotten anyone, as you can see it was a very strong team!

We’d also like to thank our industry partner IntegrateAV for providing equipment at our stands. The displays were interactive and made for clear and engaging presentations for delegates.

We were also pleased to see several of our other industry partners and supporters of DLTV at the Summit as well.

Our Term Three Professional Learning program is promoted in our most recent newsletter; however, we are acutely aware that teachers are facing continued barriers to attending in-person. At this stage, we will trial running these opportunities face-to-face, particularly as they will be free to attend (many thanks again to Google for their continued support of educators). Dependent on numbers, we will consider our delivery during Term Three and be flexible based on response. Keep an eye on our website and in our newsletters for upcoming events.

As always reach out if we can support you in any way. We are only ever a phone call or an email away.

Wishing you all a relaxing and enjoyable term break!

Cheers,

Ben Gallagher

DLTV will be at EduTECH 2022

EduTECH 2022 is set to take place in Melbourne at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 10 & 11 August. With two years of pent-up demand and an eagerness to upskill and reconnect in-person, the education sector is extremely excited to be returning to a face-to-face event format.

Keep an eye on DLTV's fortnightly newsletter (subscribe) for access to ticket discounts.

DLTV Case Studies - Implementing Digital Technologies

DLTV has been collecting a growing set of school snapshots over 2020-2021. Each case study explores a school's story so far implementing the Digital Technologies curriculum.

  • biggest successes and challenges
  • level band overviews in a common format
  • a spotlighted unit of work
  • video interview segments
  • input from DLTV and the Australian Computing Society

We are grateful for the time and effort made by teachers and DigiTech leaders at the participating schools. Every school is at a different point on this journey.

Go to the case studies

Hot on the heels of our Object-Oriented virtual workshop, DLTV is pleased to announce the release of a major resource that's been keeping us busy during 2021.

Our new virtual modules, Digital Technologies in your school, are designed to help you and your school get oriented for delivering Digital Technologies, with an emphasis on pedagogy and challenges for delivery.

The modules include informative and discussion videos, activities to complete, and opportunities for reflection. Those undertaking the modules can book to attend a live session to discuss the material with others.

We didn't want to reinvent the wheel by providing a basic introduction to Digital Technologies curriculum, though we do provide links to recommended starting points.

5 of the 10 planned modules are now available, with others to be released progressively.

This resource was made possible with support from the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
