Using ICT in the classroom presented by DigiCape
In a changing world where new technologies emerge almost daily, the role of the teacher has never been more important. As a teacher, we need to facilitate our learners’ classroom experience and also ignite their passion for learning. Join us in this session to see how you are able to leverage the power of simple tools on the iPad to create an immersive experience of learning and foster creativity, not only in the classroom but within your learners’ minds using the technology of their time. This is a hands on practical workshop and no prior experience of iPads or tablets is required.

Exploring biodiversity science through ants! presented by Iimbovane Outreach Project

Are you out of ideas for hands-on biodiversity projects? Join the “Ant ladies” from the Iimbovane Outreach Project to get some fresh ideas for biodiversity monitoring using the ants in your school ground.

The workshop focus will be on ant diversity and will show teachers how to use ants to explain concepts of biodiversity and environmental change. Other topics that will be covered in the workshop include: the role of ants as indicators of biodiversity, morphology and how scientists use morphology to distinguish between different species of ants.

The workshop will also give teachers a first-hand experience of using microscopes and how to use scientific keys to identify ant species. Teachers will receive the necessary worksheets and educational resources to help them implement the project in their Life Science classroom. The content of the workshop aligns with the knowledge strand “Diversity, Continuity and Change” in the Life Science curriculum and is aimed at Grade 10 teachers.
