Gloucester High School will be hosting a State Library of NSW professional learning workshop on Monday 14th July. The 2 and a half hour Reaching Out! presentation is Australian Curriculum focused and provides teachers with the skills to find and use the curriculum resources and classroom-ready, source-based learning activities available for K-12 students and teachers through the State Library of NSW website. There is no charge for the workshop.
Representatives from schools in the North Coast Region are invited to attend. It will be an invaluable opportunity to engage with online and digital resources from the State Library of NSW which support teaching and learning practices for the Australian Curriculum.
Places are limited to one or two teachers per school.
The presentation will be primarily online to the State Library. Please bring an Internet enabled device to access and use digital resources such as eResources, Discover Collections, subject research guides, Stages 1-6 learning activities for the NSW Syllabi/Australian Curriculum and online resources for teachers on Pinterest.
It is also a good idea for teachers to have their own State Library card so that they can access databases. You can sign up for a Library Card at: http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/using/access/register_card.html?HomeLink=howdoi
