First Change: Year 8 technology this year will be using the ATTINY85 with usb interface to program our electronic plush monsters (See Tutorial here)
Second Change: Year 8 needed an Interdisciplinary Unit because they are transitioning to MYP. I put forward a proposal with PDHPE to create a new STEM-Health Subject. We'll be helping the students to make Android Apps using Appinventor 2 to motivate users to be more healthy.
Third Change: I have the largest group of external students ever in Software Design and Development (Preliminary) and I'm looking forward to helping them to bond and work together as a class as they progress towards the mastery of HSC Software Design.
I also have the Australian Computing Academy which will start talking over more and more of my life as I help integrate Digital Technologies resources into classrooms across Australia.
This is going to be fun!
