The Learning Hub held it’s first official Digital Leaders event for the Term today, a Girls in Technology 3D Printing session.
Girls from all year levels attended the event and were exposed to how our 3D printers work, the design process, the future of 3D printing and given the opportunity to design projects of their own.
The event was the first of many Girls in Technology sessions for the year, if you’re a female student or staff member and would like more information come and see Mr. Semmens or Tina in the Learning Hub!
On the Tuesday and Wednesday of week 11 term 1 we went into the city via train to the Hawke building on the UniSA campus. At the conference we talked about digital citizenship with other schools. The other schools consisted of Urrbrae HS, Wirreanda HS and of course, Woodville HS.
Digital citizenship is a persons presence online and the devices they use. At the conference many things were discussed such as what we we want to learn about online safety and when we wanted it to happen. Also we discussed why we need to learn about this topic and the effects it brings to our daily lives. Some of the things we did to investigate the subject were making infographics, Listing ideas on Stormboard, filling out mini surveys and involving conversations with the entire group.
In one of the many talks a big majority of the students agreed to the fact that too many people in our world today spend too much time of there devices and social media. Another thing we did was write a letter to the principal of our school telling them how we want to be taught about Digital Citizenship. The letter we wrote may change how lessons are structured around the topic. A lot of people agreed that we should help our parents to learn how to use technology so that the future generation will be monitered on the internet. Some of the things that were good were the engaging discussions on online safety and the laws of the internet.
Overall the two days we were at the conference were an enjoyable way to discuss and plan important factors of digital citizenship. We hope that topics we discussed will be widely recognised and understood by all different age groups.
