Science & The Digital Curriculum

Dr David Parsons talks about the powerful relationship between the Digital Curriculum Areas and Science.

  • The two way relationship of two types of digital technologies (Computational thinking & designing for relevant digital outcomes) and how they can be integrated with topic-based learning, such as science.
  • How to use sensors (e.g. micro:bits) for simple classroom activities and scientific experiments
  • What Citizen Science is and how you can plan for your students to be citizen scientists
  • Zooniverse and the Galaxy Zoom project where students can contribute to real science
  • nQuire, a fantastic resource for kids to take part in ‘missions’ globally.
