Spotlight Session: Entrepreneurship in Education - inspiring the next generation of creators!
Limited Capacity seats available

The world is in the age of the digital disruption. If we truly want students to be future ready and cope well with the ongoing disruptions of the 21st Century, then we need to dramatically shift our processes so we are responsive and relevant to the needs of society and the workforce. According to the Foundation for Young Australians New Work Smarts (2017), young Australians will need to not only need to acquire the technical skills, but they will also need to use these skills in enterprising and creative ways.
In this session, come and explore practical strategies, programs and initiatives that Ormiston College are using to inspire entrepreneurial potential in students. Learn how we are developing students’ mind set, skills and knowledge to not only generate creative ideas, but how to turn those ideas into action.

OMG I'm back in the dark ages! Again!!
Limited Capacity seats available

We have all been there before…….. We work hard to develop digital technologies at our site, working towards leading productive pedagogies with our staff where digital technologies enhance the learning of our students, only to find yourself at a new site where digital technology is non existent in use, IWBs are glorified overhead projectors and the staff still use a paper based day book. Emails……what are they? Come along for a journey as Rick will take you through the process he used to bring his new site into the 21st Century. Rick was a main part in the process at his previous school in 2009 lifting it to its current state in 2015 only to become the principal of his new site where digital technologies were a dirty word. Hear about strategies including; non-negotiables, setting the champions free, mentoring and coaching, planning the infrastructure, professional development and so much more including the pitfalls and keeping it sane!

Old Dog New Tricks
Limited Capacity seats available

130 year old school, very low socio-economic, low levels of educational engagement, high youth and general unemployment, slow broadband, fatigued IT infrastructure – basically think of the barrier and we are there. So how, given these challenges, have we turned it around in just under two years. Increased enrolments across all grades, majority of students using preferred devices on BYOx system and most staff actively seeking out to be involved in digital learning programs and pushing the boundaries of what we thought is possible.
We will present the strategies we have used that have seen us succeed whilst highlighting the failures that we have learnt from. Our strategy has been one of involvement and engagement at all levels of staff whilst insisting that no one person is the expert. We have focussed on learning from each and more importantly, from our students and the community.

Infuse and Saturate – a communities of learning model for embedding Digital Technologies at Taroona Primary School
Limited Capacity seats available

Taroona Primary School is one of the 50 recipients of the first round of Digital Literacies Schools Grants. As one of the first schools in Tasmania to implement a 1:1 iPad program in 2013, the school has a strong history in the successful uptake of new technologies and relevant pedagogies. How then to extend from our embedded culture of using technologies to “Capture, Create and Collaborate” to the deeper understandings and constantly evolving opportunities in the Digital Technologies curriculum? This case study follows the carefully structured processes Taroona Primary has taken to build teacher knowledge, skills and understanding to saturate digital literacies across the school. The 18 month model of change is built upon leveraging early adopter teachers as at-the-elbow coaches, who work alongside colleagues to integrate digital technologies into other curriculum areas. This case study will address the key leadership considerations of resource allocation, strategies to engage non-digital-native teachers in the new languages of digital technologies, and practical examples of authentic connections in the school and wider community.

Keeping the process alive – Sustainable engagement
Limited Capacity seats available

Building upon the foundations from session 1 (Thursday 12.10pm) leaders will now explore the key considerations in monitoring and evaluating the implementation of a school wide teacher performance and development framework in the context of a high performing school. Building sustainable communities of learning which foster teacher agency of their own learning and development.
Key considerations will be the importance of setting the success criteria for the framework’s evaluation to firstly measure impact on student learning outcomes and secondly, measure collective responsibility whereby teacher agency is centre to fostering a culture of performance and development.
By the end of sessions 1 and 2 leaders will have a greater understanding of the need for ensuring aligned and focused professional learning that enables the school community to ensure that there is a comprehensive school wide strategic focused performance and development culture aligned to school improvement plans.

Shadow a Coach – a behind the scenes look at the coaching and mentoring model in action at Taroona Primary School
Limited Capacity seats available

Taroona Primary School is one of the 50 recipients of the first round of Digital Literacies Schools Grants. At the heart of the grant project is our school’s commitment to supporting a team of enthusiastic teacher leaders who have volunteered as ‘first-wave’ digital literacy coaches for the initial 18 months of implementation of the new Digital Technologies curriculum. This session uses video narratives to share our coaches demonstrating the behind-the-scene discussions and planning with their colleagues as they work together to strengthen digital integration across all areas of the curriculum. The snapshots include the processes of backward planning, conversations to better understand pedagogies to support new learning in digital technologies, and co-teaching of integrated STEM / digital technologies in classrooms. Teachers, coaches, students and leaders also share reflections of their learning throughout the process. Snaphot Video is availble at https://vimeo.com/285754624
