Workshop: Map My School Curriculum Workshop – How cool is your school?
(Workshop videos launching Monday 19 April 2021)

Video Synopsis:

In this workshop Dr Karen Joyce shows teachers how the Map My School unit of work can engage students from primary to early secondary to calculate the percentage of natural vs man-made shade on their school campus. This unit uses free software that shows students how to gather data (using satellite imagery or drones), create a map (hand-drawn or digital), and conduct some analysis on the data collected.

Teachers will be provided with free to use resources and the opportunity to participate in our national ‘Map My School’ Competition in Term 2, 2021. All resources are mapped to the Australian Curriculum for Digital Technologies, HASS, and Geography.
