Addressing the Major Changes Announced in the NEW Australian Curriculum
Led by ORIGO Co-Founders, Dr Calvin Irons and James Burnett
A series of webinars responding to the major changes to be announced in the NEW Australian Curriculum
Please note these webinars will be different to the ones held in 2021.
ACARA will release the NEW revision of the Australian Curriculum: Mathematics in April 2022. The proposed Australian Curriculum saw existing content descriptions moved, removed and written in greater detail; with new content appearing across most primary year levels. We expect further changes to be announced in April and will be holding a series of webinars aimed at addressing the major changes that will influence your teaching of mathematics.
This series will be different to the sessions held in 2021.
Your presenters, founders of ORIGO Education, Dr Calvin Irons and James Burnett have more than 80 years of combined experienced delivering professional learning in primary mathematics in Australia and abroad.
The webinar series will include 12 webinars aimed at specific grade bands. Four strands of content will be delivered for each grade band over term 3 (2022), with the option for teachers to register for a grade band webinar series (4 webinars for F-2, 3-4 or 5-6) or the full 12 webinars (full school programs).
All webinar recordings will be sent to participants within 24 hours of each webinar taking place.
Duration: 40 – 45 minutes
Individual Registration: $100 – This price is for an individual registration for a single grade band series (4 webinars)
Full School Registration: $250 – This price is for a full school (unlimited logins) for the full 12 webinars (F-6)
Please note these dates were updated in April due to the release of the new Australian Curriculum being delayed.

I love ORIGO Education!! We use both Stepping Stones and Step It Up.
Before finding ORIGO Education, we used several curriculum that never gelled. I love that my kids understand concepts so easily with ORIGO Education, I’m finding myself becoming better as well through teaching them. My kids just ‘get it’… well done on a brilliant curriculum!

“Can I just let you know how positively our staff are reflecting on the Webinars! They have really found them beneficial. We have enjoyed the conversational format that reflects the way that James and Calvin present and keep marvelling at the simple and yet such practical ways they explain maths concepts. It has truly been excellent PD! The Australian Curriculum Webinar sessions were easy to listen to, engaging and practical. I really valued the way concepts were explained with real examples and materials. The practical explanations were excellent.”
Kim Hogan, St Kevin’s Primary School, NSW
“A comprehensive, well explained understanding of the changes to new syllabus (draft). Well worth the time investment to understand the resultant need to change pedagogy in the highly effective Maths’ classroom.”
Emma Shaw, Carey Baptist College Harrisdale, WA
“The Australian Curriculum Webinar Series was engaging, interesting and very informative. James Burnett and Dr Calvin Irons are so knowledgeable and I learnt so much – not just about the upcoming changes to the curriculum but about good practice in mathematics teaching, with valuable examples and useful resources provided. I would recommend this to everyone. It was great to have resources provided and so many examples and ideas shared. I also liked that they kept each session to 40 minutes.”
Lydia Billington, Trinity Anglican College, NSW
“The changes to the curriculum were summarised succinctly and explained, particularly in relation to the progression and developmental stages of learning.”
J Meacock, Pymble Ladies College, NSW
“Thank you for all your hard work in preparing and presenting the content in a very engaging and relevant format with lots of takeaways for the busy teacher!”
Karina Cameron, Pimpama State School, QLD

James Crisapulli, Covenant College, VIC
“The commitment by the presenters to take us through the pertinent information in a common sense manner was reassuring and refreshing.”
