Workshops for Primary & Secondary

Curriculum based learning using todays technology

Activate Ed has designed these workshops in alignment with the Australian Curriculum and Assessment Reporting Authority (2017). Each workshop is connected with the Digital Technologies curriculum and some can also be linked to the Design and Technologies curriculum in creating digital solutions.

These workshops can be implemented as an incursion, as an after school program or for a special event. Activate Ed can develop workshops to work with you and your students to address their specific curriculum needs as well as their differentiated needs for learning. The benefit of Activate Ed is that workshop content can be tailored to fit into existing units, inquiries, events and themes; or we can develop workshop content on your behalf.

In the spirit of the amazingly successful Create Queensland Regional Roadshow with Activate, the Department of Education and Youtube Kids, Activate Ed has put together their own Roadshow 2.0, our Digital Festival.
