Inspirational material

  • [Feb 2014] Women in technology video from Career Player. Suitable for 13 - 18 year old girls either as a complete 11 min video or as separate clips answering different questions
  • [Oct 2013] Careers in IT and Technology video from Career Player. Suitable for 13 - 18 year olds either as a complete 27 min video or as separate clips answering different questions.
  • [Sept 2010] eSkills bulletin show continued growth in demand for ICT staff
  • has videos featuring all the famous names (Gates, Zuckerberg, etc), explaining why “Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn to code”. Not exactly about careers, but very motivating.
  • University of Sydney video on What is IT? (Note: In Australia, IT is used as a technical umbrella term. It does not mean ICT, it’s more like our “Computing”.)
