Mondays@Murdoch: Making the Most of BYO Device Programs

iPads and tablets are a part of our day-to-day lives. So, why are they not a part of our day-to-day teaching and learning experiences?

This presentation will explore different ways teachers can make the most of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs in their classrooms. Learn to utilise iPads beyond game-play and engage students in your teaching and learning activities through the use of smart technology. You will see examples of practice, where iPad technology and apps are used in assessment and activities before, during and after teaching and learning.

You do not need to be an expert to use technology to engage your students with amazing apps that benefit teaching and assessment in the following ways:

  • Supporting the delivery and collection of data from, diagnostic, formative, and summative assessments
  • Providing students with opportunities to develop reasoning, technology, and self-regulatory skills
  • Saving time in the distribution and collection of assessment data

Mondays@Murdoch: Shifting Educational Paradigms

Do you know of a school student that falls through the cracks? They are a brilliant person but don’t seem to thrive at school? What about students that go under the radar? Or are really successful outside of school but not in school?

Chelsea Horner co-founder of in8Ed and author of ‘Generation Failure and the in8model Educator Revolution’ will shed some light on how all students can thrive at school. Come and find out what happens in our brains on a deeper level when we have an experience and how we learn. Is it possible to cater for all students in school? If there were a way would you take the risk to try it?

Hill Lecture Theatre, Education & Humanities (Building 450)

Mondays@Murdoch Back to Basics- but whose basics? Bringing Relevance back to the classroom.

The catch-cry ‘back to basics’, heard all too often in education, suggests that the cure-all for all the perceived ills of school is to return to a focus on numeracy and literacy. And then to test and re-test the students. There can be no surer way to stifle the joy of learning.

This presentation aims to challenge teachers to find better ways to engage students in their learning and to encourage students to be the agents of change. How can we work with our students at all stages of their learning – through shared planning, delivery and assessment – to ensure that the classroom experience provokes rather than repels?
