Project Based Learning (PBL) "A sense of purpose"
Project/ Problem Based Learning is a recognised, well researched method of curriculum instruction and development. It enables learners to understand the reason why they are learning about a particular subject and understand the associated issues. It encourages further research into topic or issue and enables learners to solve real life problems, collaborate and communicate out of the confines of a traditional classroom. PBL integrates easily into CAPS and enables cross curricular integration. Learn how to design and create enaging, integrated projects which encourages collaboration and the development of higher order thinking skills.

Transforming lessons for 21st Century Learners
What is "innovative teaching practice"? What are the characteristics of a “21st century educator”? What are the characteristics of a “21st century learner”? What school and system factors most support innovative teaching practices? 21st century outcomes are the skills, knowledge and expertise learners should master to succeed in work and life in the 21st century. Align and transform your own lessons for 21st Century Learners.

Modify, transform and redefine your technology integration using the SAMR ICT Integration Model.
SAMR is a model designed to help educators infuse technology into teaching and learning. Popularised by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, the model supports and enables teachers to design, develop, and infuse digital learning experiences which utilise technology. The goal is to transform learning experiences so they result in higher levels of achievement for learners.

Coding- the new literacy of the 21st Century
We are educating learners for jobs which don't exist yet. Coding, the new literacy of the 21st Century develops problem solving, logical thinking, persistence, collaboration, communication and computational thinking. "The role of the teacher is to create conditions for invention rather than ready-made knowledge" (Seymour Papert). The teacher does not need to know how to code in order to take learners on this exciting and engaging journey. Learn about the journey of a Cape Town Primary School into coding and robotics using free resources on mobile devices and pc's.

Growing Global Digital Citizens
Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what learners/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is a way to prepare learners/ technology users for a technological society. it is is the norms of appropriate, responsible technology use. Too often we are seeing learners as well as adults misusing and abusing technology and we not sure what to do. The issue is more than what the users do not know but what is considered appropriate technology usages.

Makerspaces, sometimes also referred to as hackerspaces, hackspaces, and fablabs are creative, DIY spaces where people can gather to create, invent, and learn.
Making is fundemental to what it means to be human. We must make, create and express ourselves to feel whole. There is something unique about making physical things. Design a problem based integrated project for the learners at your school to create their own maker space kits/ STEAM boxes.

Paperless assessment to ensure that learners arrive at the destination of learning.
e-Assessment is the use of technology to manage and deliver assessment. This assessment itself could be diagnostic, formative, or summative. The content can vary: from an online multiple choice quiz to a peer-assessment exercise in which students are required to assess each other's work. Use electronic resources and tools to work smarter, not harder.

How does it do that? Demystifying a complex technology.
Robotics enable children to become motivated and engaged in Science, Mathematics and Technology through observation, experimentation, inference, drawing, model building, rational reasoning etc.They create curiosity, excitement and exploration which in turn creates a culture of thinking, inventing, tinkering and doing to promote enquiry based learning in schools. To encourage and nurture schools to be incubators of Innovation. Explore a number of different robotic technologies presented by loacl suppliers of teh technology.
