Learning to let go of our craving for some sense of permanence in a rapidly changing world’ stability, durability, persistence, permanency, fixity, fixedness, changelessness, immutability, endurance, dependability, constancy, continuance, continuity, immortality, indestructibility, perpetuity, endlessness. Those days are gone and that is why we need the ability to Think Technologically.

South Australia needs people who independently and collaboratively generate innovative solutions to complex problems and contribute to our knowledge economy and society.

Paula will develop your conversations, questions, skills, knowledge and understandings of what it means to develop Design Thinking, Systems Thinking and Computational Thinking skills within and beyond Digital Technologies learning programs.
