Join some of the ICT Educators Committee for pre-conference Educational tours. Agenda:
The itinerary is
Meeting 8:00am at Blue Street entrance of North Sydney station. Need to be on time to catch the 8:10 train.
Alternative meeting point Westmead station at Railway parade entrance at 9:00 am.
First visit: Parramatta Marist High - Learn about Project Based Learning in a school that has used it as an intrinsic part of their instructional design. Tour classrooms designed to support PBL and hear from the leadership team about how it works for them.
Bus transfer to Macquarie university.
Second visit: Macquarie University
There are two exciting spaces to explore at Macquarie university. We will be taken through the new library and shown around the mixture of learning, study and collaborative spaces as well as shown the robotic book retrieval system that saved the university library so much space. We will also tour MUSE, the Macquarie university student space. This is a learning and socialising space designed by the students for the students and exemplifies what great, useful breakout spaces should be like.
Lunch will be supplied at Macquarie university and snacks on the bus.
The tour will finish at Macquarie university at approximately 3 pm. You can then travel back to North Sydney station straight away with ictensw committee members or wander around Macquarie centre for shopping and coffee.
