GOLD COAST CHAPTER

The Gold Coast Chapter supports the professional development for teachers and technologies leaders, on the extended Gold Coast from Beenleigh in the north to Coolangatta in the south.

QSITE Gold Coast Chapter

The QSITE Gold Coast Chapter has been providing professional development and teacher support for over a decade and a half. We organise PD and Teachmeet events each term to meet the needs of educators within the local area. We also hold our annual EducateIT one day conference for teachers and school leaders in Technologies.

We welcome contact from all Gold Coast (and beyond) teachers, IT managers and support staff to our meetings, workshops, TeachMeets and events.

Please check our calendar events below and join our goldcoast@qsite.edu.au email list below to be updated on our upcoming events. It is not necessary to be a QSITE member to participate in our discussions and most events.

by Mark Holland, FNQ Sparkey loves Robotics…… and so do many local schools in Far North Queensland. Each year, QSITE Far North Queensland Chapter organises and sponsors three different events for local students to pit their robotics skills against each other in the spirit of shared technology and friendship.  These events are Sumo Robotics, the Robotics Grand Prix and the ever popular Far North version of RoboCup.

I wish to use this issue of QUICK to remind QSITE members about what constitutes Life Membership of QSITE. Definitions distort over time and history’s intent is often lost as successive Boards of QSITE reinvent policy, as they should. Life membership has not changed in its intent and value, so I feel safe in reiterating the core ideas of the award to both remind the Board and inform the membership.
