I am Ludwig Ablana and I teach Technologies at Inglewood Primary School. I have over 12 years of teaching experience in three countries with four years dedicated to the field of digital technologies and design and technology.
I am passionate about introducing students to the exciting world of technology and fostering their curiosity and creativity. I believe that technology can play a significant role in shaping the future and it is highly-important to equip students with the necessary skills to succeed in a rapidly changing technological landscape. With hands-on learning experiences and interactive projects, I aim to develop students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
The Technologies programme includes a strong emphasis on Robotics, with opportunities for students to participate in exciting competitions and showcase their skills. Through hands-on learning and practical application, students are given the chance to develop their coding skills and explore the endless possibilities of technology. We also join competitions highlighting computational thinking such as the BEBRAS Challenge. Computational thinking is a problem-solving approach that involves breaking down complex issues into smaller, manageable parts and using algorithms and data analysis to find solutions. The annual Technologies Fair provides students with a platform to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of different technologies, including apps, and to share their projects with their peers and the wider community.
Following the Western Australian Curriculum, students are given the opportunity to explore different Technologies contexts such as Food and Fibre Production, Engineering Principles and Materials Specialisation for Semester One. Students explore Digital Systems, Data Representation and Analysis, and Digital Implementation in Semester Two. We also emphasize the importance of digital citizenship and responsible use of technology, ensuring that our students are prepared to thrive in a world increasingly shaped by technology.
