New iHubhttp://www.materdei.qld.edu.au/NewsandEvents/Pages/New-iHub.aspxNew iHub<p>​<img src="/NewsandEvents/SiteAssets/Pages/New-iHub/Screen%20Shot%202020-12-08%20at%201.15.12%20pm.png" alt="Screen Shot 2020-12-08 at 1.15.12 pm.png" style="margin:5px;" />​<br></p><div>​Last year Mater Dei was successful in receiving a Commonwealth Grant under the Local Schools Community Fund. This grant was used to upgrade our Digital Technology resources for our whole school community as well as allow our students and staff engage in  professional learning sessions on block coding using WeDo's and EV3's robots . The children loved experimenting with the world of programming and coding, as well as designing their own creations that move, make sounds, detect motion and colour. By the end of the year all our students had an opportunity to participate in design thinking processes as well as improve their general ICT capabilities. We also renamed our media room (in the library) to the Innovation Hub (iHub). <br></div><div><strong>A huge thank you to the Commonwealth Government for giving our students this amazing opportunity to add to their skills set and knowledge base, and for providing such an important resource to further develop the vision we have for our iHub and our 21st century learner​s.</strong></div><p><br></p>
