EXTEND YOUR DIGITAL LEARNING HERE
We’ve provided a range of resources, videos and materials to take you further on your digital learning journey.
Last year 217 schools, 31 libraries and an estimated 19,026 children got on board with my Learn to Speak Robot Challenge.
Learn to Speak Robot will run each year and I am also introducing my brand new design thinking challenge – Space to Dream.
Space to Dream is all about learning to be an effective and creative problem solver. Down the track, systems thinking, digital literacy and digital citizenship themed-challenges will join the mix.
Our future requires bold thinkers who know how to create out-of-the-box solutions – so let’s encourage as many children and young people in South Australia as possible to take a journey towards digital empowerment with my Digital Challenge in 2020.
I can’t wait to see all of your amazing, beautiful, funny, sunny, inspiring, useful and ground-breaking Space to Dream designs later this year!
