Newly arrived on the ICT education scene and building on the successful Scientists and Mathematicians in Schools program, CSIRO Education’s ICT in Schools, a partnership program is a great way for you and your students to get personal with real-life ICT as it’s practised and researched!

ICTiS creates and supports ongoing, flexible partnerships between volunteer ICT professionals and teachers, showcasing real world, contemporary ICT in the classroom. The ICT professionals bring their infectious enthusiasm for their subject to the classroom which the students find difficult to resist.

Hear from and about ICTiS partnerships including activities done together and impacts of the partnership on students, teachers and ICT professionals. The presentation explores how ICTiS supports implementation of the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies and the ICT general capability and how to fully utilise the knowledge, skills and capacity of a partner ICT professional.
