In 2010 Secondary schools were invited to participate in the ISER DER Project School Initiative. The aim of the project was to have teams of teachers from each KLA adapt existing Stage Five units of work to include innovative uses of technology to enhance teaching and learning. Sixteen teams were selected from a cross-section of KLAs.

School teams participated in an orientation day where they paired with another school ( from the same KLA where possible). They engaged in professional development to enhance their technology skills and were made aware of the project requirements. School teams were allocated time to use for planning and professional development across two terms. Regional personnel from the Connected Learning Portfolio provided support where required. Partner schools participated in video conferences during the project to discuss their project and provide support for each other.

In Term Four a Sharing Day was held.
At the Sharing Day teachers and students shared their units and work samples with each other.
The units and resources developed by these schools are displayed below.
Schools may download the resources and use them or adapt them to suit their own school requirements.


Stage 5 Units of Work and Resources developed as part of the 2010 DER Project Schools Initiative in the Illawarra South East Region.
