[b]8:30am - 9am
Speaker: David Ey
Partner, Piper Alderman[/b]

[b]Session Overview
[/b]Principals and other school leaders often feel unsure about how to deal with teacher underperformance, as distinct from misconduct.  They think that underperformance is hard to prove and they fear the legal consequences of dismissing an unsatisfactory teacher.  The result in many cases is that nothing is done and the problem persists.  This session aims to inform school leaders about how to navigate the legal risks associated with addressing underperformance, including to the point of a dismissal where necessary.  Cases decided by industrial tribunals will be examined, to give participants an understanding of when a performance-related dismissal is likely to be held to be fair or unfair..

[b]9:30am - 10:30am
Speaker: Jane Kupsch
Partner, Piper Alderman[/b]

[b]Session Overview
[/b]Schools are dynamic environments in which the interests, rights, obligations and responsibilities of various individuals and groupss co-exist. Those individuals and groups include the student body, teaching staff, school leaders, administrators, governing bodies, parent groups and volunteers. Occasionally, an event that poses legal risk to some or all of those groups arises.

This session will explore, with practical examples, how schools identify and manage potential legal risks and what should be done when a potential risk materialises into threatened or actual, legal proceedings.

[b]12:00pm – 1:00pm[/b]
[b]Speaker: Simon Venus
Partner, Piper Alderman[/b]

[b]Session Overview
 [/b]Schools are large and small, they have different legal forms, can be denominational or not, and operate within government and non- government frameworks. Irrespective of the structure or nature of a school, there are some important and common underlying themes and duties for governing bodies. However, there is no “cookie cutter” model for governance; the individual approach of a particular governing body should be sympathetic to the size and nature of the school over which it has stewardship. This session will look at the key sources of governance for school governing bodies, as well as statutory and other duties and through a series of case studies, tease out some governance issues which have presented boards and their chairs.

Speaker: Tim Clark
Partner, Piper Alderman[/b]

[b]Session overview
 [/b]Tim has experience acting in relation to intellectual property and information technology matters for schools, tertiary institutions, education service providers and IT service providers to the education sector. In this session, Tim will take a practical look at the following top 5 legal issues in procuring IT services for schools:

(1) ensuring that ownership of intellectual property is dealt with in an appropriate manner;
 (2) making sure you clearly specify what it is that you are going to get (including using a tendering process);
 (3) ensuring there is clarity around pricing (including allowing for future growth);
 (4) ensuring that there are clear and appropriate service levels and
 (5) ensuring that providers are part of the solution (and not the problem) in dealing with privacy and data security issues.

This event has now concluded. The 2019 Conference program will be announced mid November 2018. 

G9 Education will once again present Master Classes for Principals and school leadership teams. G9 is a consortium of highly experienced educational consultants working together to improve schools and schooling.

The Master Class program has been designed to give school leaders practical guidance about how to design, align and implement key school improvement reforms

The sessions will have a school-wide focus and outline proven practices for getting the whole-school curriculum right; getting staff performance right; and getting whole-school teaching right.

Key topics include:

Participants will be challenged by the latest research explaining why schooling needs to be transformed and participate in sessions that build the case for and provide the strategies to:

·         build a positive view of students, teachers and schools by focusing on curiosity, engagement and empowerment (Session 1 with Wayne Craig)

·         manage, monitor and embed a school-wide approach to sustaining the implementation of high impact classroom practices (Session 2 with Peter Cole)

·         focus staff performance on the things that really matter (Session 3 with Ross Kimber)

Session 4 with Chris Wardlaw will be a hands-on session using tested evidence-based tools that support leaders and teachers to improve the quality of teaching and learning by:

·         collecting real-time data on high impact leadership and teaching practices

·         interpreting and reflecting on data to pinpoint those practices that are working well and those that need improving

These sessions derived from a well-established evidence base focus on how to re-engineer current core schooling processes and practices to produce significant school-wide improvement. They provide participants with practical ways of looking at taken-for-granted approaches that may no longer represent best practice.

[b]Session Overview[/b]
Our nation’s first Digital Technologies Curriculum is available now,  with schools expected to implement the curriculum by the end of 2018. As  a new curriculum, the challenge remains for teachers to understand the  syllabus deeply enough to embed these learning opportunities  effectively, as well as realise the links towards other curriculum areas  that can help support a meaningful approach. In this workshop suitable  for K-6 educators, participants will be invited and supported to:
[list][*]Examine the links between outcomes in Digital Technologies, English and Mathematics curriculum.[/*][*]Understand the ways in which the curriculum can be translated into practice.[/*][*]Participate in a learning design process to create a lesson, sequence or unit with multiple interdisciplinary links.[/*][/list][url=http://www.theeducationshow.com.au/nes-events/digital-classroom--practice/coding][size=150]Option 2: Coding where Mathematics Curriculum and Digital Technologies Curriculum align with perfect synergy[/size][/url]

 Seven Hills West Public School[/b]

[b]Session Overview[/b]
In this session, delegates will learn how coding can be integrated into the Mathematics curriculum and enhance the learning of students. Delegates will learn a range of coding platforms that will equip them with tools using both online platforms to robotics to enhance their delivery of both curricula. The session will tick a number of outcomes from both curricula especially in the process and production skills. Grant will discuss how coding can be differentiated for all students within the classroom setting. He will also discuss how coding skills can be integrated across the other Key Learning Areas. Grant will also discuss the importance of TPACK (technological pedagogical content knowledge) when teaching both digital technologies and Mathematics.

 Wallarano Primary School[/b]

[b]Session Overview
[/b]In this session, delegates will get hands on experience with a variety of digital tools, including Dash and Dot, Beebots, Ollies and iPad apps that can be used to enhance the delivery of the Primary Literacy Curriculum. We will share what has worked at our school, and how teachers at all levels are using digital tools to engage students and improve learning outcomes.

[b]Speaker: Aaron Davis
 Technology Implementation Coach[/b]

[b]Session Overview
[/b]In this session we will use Edublogs and other blogging platforms fostering contemporary digital technology skills. Using Belshaw’s notion of ‘Digital Literacies’ I will focus on critical thinking, creativity and communication. I believe that if a school wished they could cover just about all of the Digital Technologies Curriculum using blogging. If you are working with students with disabilities blogging has so many entry points that it can be differentiated to the needs of any learner and/or classroom.

[b]Speakers: Aaron Davis
  Technology Implementation Coach[/b]

[b]Session Overview [/b]
 In this session participants will use GSuite to foster contemporary  digital technology skills. Using Belshaw’s notion of ‘Digital  Literacies’ Aaron will focus on critical thinking, creativity and  communication. Documentation and ongoing reporting covers most aspects  of the Digital Technologies Curriculum. The point of ongoing reporting  is to be differentiated. The challenge is choosing the right solution  for the problem at hand. This will be addressed in this session.
