Course Description

The new NSW K-10 Modern Languages syllabus was released at the end of Term 4 in 2022. Teachers have all of 2023 to become familiar with it, before it comes into effect in 2024.

This short course outlines the 'need-to-knows' of the new syllabus framework, as well as some suggestions for how to get going with programming.

Presented by Alison Dean, one of the writers for the new syllabus, this PD will guide you through its key differences and features, providing examples and suggestions for how to apply the criteria in the classroom.

The programming examples provided are from Stage 4 and 5 but may be applied to any stage.
