New Learning Environments: Linq Precinct
Murray James and Vanessa Noonan from Sheldon College spoke at length about their whole school approach and showcased the Linq Precinct at the college. This drool worth state of the art building provides the space required to make new pedagogical approaches to teaching and the implementation of Digital Technologies possible.
The College also used Project Based Learning to facilitate the integration of Digital Technologies with some really exciting units that has great links to curriculum and the real world. There was an impressive commitment to teacher professional development with teachers getting into the Maker Movement. The culture of sharing about their projects was hugely impressive and placed value on the work of the students.
