    Authentic Contexts
    25 August
    Public discussion Created by Lisa Hargreaves

    Hi Everyone

    I'm interested in what schools and teachers are doing within the new curriculum that is authentic by nature. As part of my Reflective Journal for my Masters on Effective use of Digital Technologies in the Primary Classroom, I'm including a table that gives teachers ideas for 'authentic' contexts for CTDT and DDDO. Apologies if I have missed a discussion on this already, if you could please respond with any ideas on 'authentic contexts' that would be much appreciated.


    Technology Online has hosted another great presentation, where primary teacher and STEM specialist Sarah Washbrooke shares how she makes connections locally across her community to find authentic ways to integrate both Computational Thinking and Designing and Developing Digital Outcomes. Well worth viewing and sharing.

    Any other ideas for creating authentic contexts for integration of DT & HM in your school/kura?
