Day of STEM

Day of STEM
The Australian Council for Computers in Education (ACCE) has joined LifeJourney’s Day of STEM
 
initiative as a strategic education partner. The ACCE is the national professional body for those involved
 
in the use of information and communications technology in education.
 
ACCE and LifeJourney’s partnership will center around the deployment of the Day of STEM’s career
 
exploration platform to information technology and computing teachers across Australia. A key outcome
 
of the partnership will be continuing to align the platform to address the concepts found within the
 
Australian Digital Technologies Curriculum.
 
Martin Levins, President of the Australian Council for Computers in Education, said “Cybersecurity threatens our
 
modern networked life. Thankfully, LifeJourney’s Cyber Security challenge provides a good grounding to become
 
CyberSavvy, and opens up a world of employment opportunities for our students. Optus is to be praised for its
 
forward looking support of this program”
 
ACCE will play a crucial role in helping to roll-out the the Cyber Teacher program, a professional
 
development opportunity that will help teachers integrate cyber security concepts into their lessons
 
through the Optus Cyber Security Experience.
 
Cyber Teacher: by running the Optus Cyber Security Experience with your students in class, you’re not only providing high
 
quality learning resources to your students, you’re also on your way to become a certified Cyber Teacher. This professional
 
development opportunity for Australian teachers includes interaction with our Cyber Teacher mentor and an adaptive learning
 
course that helps prepare you to introduce cyber security into your school.
 
The ACCE council members are comprised of the following state and territory information technology and
 
computing education organisations and the Australian Computer Society (ACS).
 
● Information Technology Educators ACT
 
● EdTechSA
 
● Educational Computing Association of Western Australia
 
● Digital Learning and Teaching Victoria
 
● ICT Educators of NSW
 
● Queensland Society for Information Technology in Education
 
● Tasmanian Society for Information Technology in Education.

the national ACCE Conference, and contributing to national public policy and projects such as the Digital
 
Technologies Curriculum.
