Synthesis of University and School based learning to produce an integrated
Program for Year 7, this program will be designed as a Web site or interactive
program, for teacher and student use, to cover the first 4-5 weeks of
Term 1 for Year 7 students just entering high school. Please address VELS
learning outcomes in your unit planning.
Critical evaluation developed
as a Web site should be the equivalent of 1200 – 1500 words in length.

Technology lesson delivered individually or in small groups,
students will explore an aspect of Technology teaching. The presentation
will involve some theoretical analysis, practical demonstration and participatory
activities relevant to the topic.
A report on the process
and a reflective price of writing submitted following the presentation.
The goal of the project is to visit each of the latitude and longitude
integer degree intersections in the world, and to take pictures at each
location. The pictures and stories will then be posted here.
THE PETERS PROJECTION
AN AREA ACCURATE MAP
The Peters Map is an equal area map.
This new map shows all areas - whether countries, continents or oceans
- according to their actual size. Accurate comparisons become possible.
The Peters Map is an equal axis map.
All North-South lines run vertical on this map. Thus, geographic
points can be seen in their precise directional relationship.
The Peters Map shows equal positions.
All East-West Lines run parallel. Thus the relationship of any point
on the map to its distance from the equator or the angle of the sun
can readily be determined.

Subject: [Year 12 Its] draft IT study design

hi folks - a few study design thoughts,
In Systems it's great to see software development getting more
coverage and the compressing of the SDLC. Shame to see PM tools
still in there though.
I like the rationalisation of dotpoints too - it is a much clearer
document, particularly for first timers. I still struggle with ICT
as a label , reeks of change for the sake of change. I guess it
won't last long though - by 2010 the no doubt renamed VCAA will
come up with something rad like ....ahh 'computer science'!!
Unit 1 and 2 look ok - the study design is still suitably vague
enough to allow plenty of freedom within the 6 main sub topics.
Very pleased again to see more emphasis on programming though.
Lets say 8/10 - "showing strong signs of improvement"
I have strong concerns about the content of the animations that students
will produce when given free reign, as you can see from the above example.
Please read The Professor as Censor: Creative Limitation and Film Production
Journal of Film & Video Spring 2001, Vol. 53 Issue 1, p25-39
Franklin focuses on the conflict between censorship and creative limitation
in terms of film production pedagogy he concludes that the nature of artistic
production is enhanced when students are prohibited from including gratuitous
violence in their video productions.
This conference will explore the learning theory underpinning game
programming in schools. Speakers from around Australia will share best
practice in using game programming as a relevant, authentic and highly
motivating task which develops higher order cognitive and metacognitive
skills. It is a unique opportunity to network with leaders from around
Australia in this rapidly growing area
