Retech: Digital Innovation and Integration in the Classroom
With Helen Stower and Kathryn Schravemade, Mt Alvernia College
Webinar replay – 60 minutes

A key goal of future proof education is to ensure students are engaging with information, people and technologies as connected learners and that this engagement is effective, safe and ethical.

In a particular school setting, it was identified that traditional ICT subjects focused on the development of software usage skills, which no longer supported the evolving needs of students.  Instead Helen and Kathryn needed students to develop skills in digital citizenship so that they could participate effectively in an online and networked world.  Retech (Research and Technology) is a Middle Years learning experience that has developed in response to this need.

The presentation explores some of the skills taught in Retech:

  • Cybersafety & building a positive digital footprint;
  • Information literacies such as smart searching, curation, effective note taking, licensing and attribution;
  • Using blogs and social media for building a PLN (Personal Learning Network);
  • Collaboration through shared bookmarks, notes & Google Groups;
  • Inquiry and problem solving; and
  • Creating and presenting with digital tools such as video productions, podcasts and infographics.

Participants will leave this session with:

  • An outline of the Retech model and its place within the whole school curriculum;
  • An overview of the content and strategies used to build robust digital citizens through connecting, researching, creating and collaborating;
  • Resources used with students;
  • Tools utilised and skills developed by students;
  • Resources used to engage parents; and
  • Teacher professional development offered.
