    In 2021, the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) introduced its Framework for the Assessment of Creative Thinking. This aims to help teachers "measure their students’ capacity to engage productively in the generation, evaluation and improvement of ideas that can result in original and effective solutions, advances in knowledge, and impactful expressions of imagination.” 

    DATTA Vic has developed this Teaching Design & Creative Thinking Masterclass for primary teachers to help them innovate in the delivery of STEM and Design & Technologies, and celebrate the opportunities this curriculum offers to make their students critical and creative thinkers, skilled at solving authentic problems. This program aims to inspire participants to take a new approach to Design-based Learning and consider how they can facilitate their own students’ creative thinking capabilities.  

    We're delighted to be partnering with NGV on this program, and we'll start with a full-day, in person workshop at the St. Kilda Road venue on the 5th October. This will include special access to Up Down and All Around Daniel Emma for Kids exhibition, which seeks to introduce children to the role of design in our world and encourage them to become creative problem solvers.

    There will then be two online sessions in the evenings of the 26th October and 16th November. Participants will have their final session at the DATTA Vic annual conference, Tomorrow's Innovators, on the 1st of December, where they'll celebrate the outcomes of their design sprints with delegates - and get to attend the rest of the event at no cost.

    Places are free but are strictly limited, and are via application. Note applications close on August 31st!

    Preference will be given to low SES and regional schools, however the information included in your personal statement will also be taken into account. We encourage small groups of teachers from the same school to join where possible, as you'll be supported to develop programs for your own contexts

      How will you celebrate National Design & Technologies Week?


      Design and Technologies Week is a national celebration of all things D&T that takes place every year in classrooms throughout Australia. It's THE time to promote our fantastic learning area within your schools, showcasing the creative, innovative and challenging work your students are engaged in – to colleagues, principals, families and the wider community.

      So how can you get involved?

      Run a design or engineering challenge with your class? Showcase some of your student designs at assembly? Put on an exhibition of classwork? Hold a runway show or organise a lunchtime maker club or repair café? The choice is yours! It's a great way to build support for your subject and attract more students. Just please remember to register above so we know you're taking part!

      If you need some more ideas for activities, the Design & Technologies Week website is filled with resources to help you engage your students - including design challenges, engineering activities, virtual tours, STEM projects industry podcasts and much, much more!
