About this Unit
From 2020 students should note that core units are now taught in semesters rather than half yearly sessions. This unit will focus on developing scientific and technological pedagogical content knowledge appropriate for teaching science and technology for students in the K-6 years. It models appropriate pedagogical and pedagogical content knowledge. Students use collaborative social learning situations to develop content knowledge, along with interpersonal and communication skills. The pedagogies modelled will be inclusive and demonstrate how scientific and technological learning experiences can be developed to cater for the needs of the diverse groups of student learners in primary schools. Students learn about engaging science and technology activities that empower primary school students and create futures for students where the capacity to engage with and critically evaluate scientific and technological activity will become increasingly necessary. Students focus on themselves as learners and reflect on the implications of their learning and the learning of others in their future professional practice.
