Welcome to Technovation Australia! Implementation plan for program coordinators

This series of six workshops will build the capacity of teachers to deliver a 12 week youth entrepreneurship program in their school, either as part of the formal Tech Girls Movement program (Search for the Next Tech Girl Superhero) or as part of your curriculum in the classroom or your lunchtime/afternoon tech club.

The program targets teachers in the year level groups 3-4. 5-6, 7-8 to match the Digital Technologies curriculum groupings. This targeting also corresponds with the ages of participants in the 2014 youth entrepreneurship program, ranging from 8-16. Code the Future will partner with the Tech Girls Movement to support teachers in key elements of the curriculum by matching teachers with specific technology support and expertise, and together we will help teachers to implement the curriculum in innovative and contemporary ways.
