Presented by: Andrew Douch
Event Information: 6 PD Hours
The skills that our students will need to thrive in the economy of the future are very different to those that were needed to be successful in the past. Already we are seeing a marked increase in employment opportunities for school leavers with presentation skills, communication skills, digital literacy, creativity, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. How can we as teachers take advantage of the digital tools available to us, to promote these future-ready skills in our students?
In this workshop, Andrew will explore strategies teachers can use to position our students for success in the future job market, and apps and websites we can use to promote the necessary skills.

About the Presenter
Andrew Douch is an independent education consultant and a teacher with 22 years classroom experience. Andrew began “flipping” his classroom back in 2005, long before the term “flipped classroom” was coined. His use of educational technology, including those used to flip his classes , has won him numerous awards, including an Australian Government Award for Quality Schooling, the Victorian Education Excellence Award for Curriculum Innovation, the Microsoft Worldwide Innovative Teacher of the Year and an IMS Global Learning Impact Leadership Award.
His mantra is “You don’t need to be very good with technology to do very good things with technology”. Andrew’s message is that in the second decade, teachers no longer need to be “tech-savvy” to transform their classrooms into thriving, connected, learning communities. Rather they need a willingness to question their 20th Century paradigms and rethink their roles as educators in a world where information is available on-demand and communication is instantaneous.
