11.15am - 12.15pmWhat works: How to engage all kids but especially kids from disadvantaged backgrounds. It is claimed recently that almost 50% of our students are disengaged from school. Is this actually true? What does this mean for our teaching? In this presentation I will report on what I have learnt about student engagement over 30 years of teaching in the most disadvantaged schools and more recent research. I will show teachers how to ensure that what we teach will actually engage our students. Examples of engaging curriculum will be used. This session is suitable for all teachers from K-12Dr David Zyngier, Monash University

10.45am - 12.45pmThe Positive & Productive Classroom – Dealing with Common Classroom Challenging BehaviourThis presentation gives teachers a comprehensive insight as to why students ‘misbehave’, and to reflect on why many of our current approaches may not be effective. The foundation of the program will be to examine negative attention seeking and power struggles, and explore everyday effective strategies that teachers can use to minimise and reduce these behaviours in the classroom context. Jo Lange, Behaviour Specialist
1.15pm - 2.00pmIgniting gifted learners to reach their potentialAs teachers, we are familiar with differentiating in order to cater for a large range of needs in our classrooms. One of these needs is that of gifted students who - like all students - may need help, in their case beyond pure acceleration, in order to reach their potential. The question is how to inspire these students who may otherwise under-achieve and exhibit passive or disruptive behaviors in class? Penny believes that all students deserve the opportunity to reach their potential. In this seminar, Penny will clarify why it's just as critical that we cater well for gifted students and the dilemmas we face when we attempt to do so. She will outline the keys to breaking through and getting them tuned in - and out of their comfort zones. Penny Willoughby, Thinking Outside The Box
2.15pm - 3.00pmLearning with Emotions in Mind: filling up a child's learning tank with Confidence, Persistence and ResilienceTeaching children how to self-regulate their emotions when challenged by learning is rarely taught - but sorely needed. Hear about two essential skills - that all children can learn - from the co-author of Australia's latest social, emotional and cognitive wellbeing program.Helen Davidson, Best Program 4 Kids
3.15pm - 4.00pmFidget to Focus - When and why on earth would you give a child a ‘fidget toy’ in the classroom? Practical hints for effective use.An explanation as to why some kids are able to cope better at school when given access to a fidget tool or other ’sensory tools’ - a little bit of the theory behind why sensory strategies assist some children to self-regulate at school. Some children have difficulties with sensory processing affecting their ability to self-regulate and attend at school and home. Sensory strategies are often suggested to help these children. Sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t. It’s important to identify what’s happening for the child before trying random sensory strategies to increase the chances of getting it right. It’s also important to know how to use these strategies from a practical point of view - when used incorrectly they don’t work and it’s easy to give up on a strategy that may have made a real difference! We want to get it right for our kids.Penny Melsom and Caryn Mincherton, Skillbuilders

11.15am - 12.00pmShifting the Literacy Paradigm - Australian Educators as Agents for ChangePhonics is to reading and spelling, what times tables are to mathematics. It is the foundation on which reading and spelling are built. The use of phonics for reading and writing is a life-long skill. Even the most literate of adults, when faced with an unfamiliar word, will revert to phonics to decode and encode. Mandating the teaching of phonics will make a major difference to literacy results in Australian schools but only if all teachers have adequate understanding of the Alphabetic Principle and phonetic structure of English. Improving teachers' subject knowledge is imperative to improving literacy outcomes and making pedagogical change.Denyse Ritchie, The THRASS Institute

11.15-12.00Turning Big Data in Big Gains for studentsTechnology is a great enabler of innovation in education, yet we still need teachers to have knowledge and skills behind its use, plus the capacity to engage and motivate students. There is no question that technology leverages 21st Century learning to a ‘new’ meaning in our classroom programs, but how students are learning still depends on the skills and aptitude of teachers. Our challenge is not only if 21st Century learning is being addressed in the classroom, but also how it is being offered to support quality, authentic learning opportunities for students. In this workshop participants will hear how schools have used data to unlock a universe of information around 21st Century pedagogy, and assisted in the design and delivery of contemporary teaching and learning practices.Melanie Gillies, RTG
