Practical Digital Technology
November 8, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
A 90-minute program providing participants the opportunity to learn how to use revolutionary wireless technology to control systems.
Many microprocessors currently used in schools need to be connected via USB in order to be programmed. Tablet devices that have no USB port cannot be used to program these microprocessors. Developed in South Australia, the STEMSEL WiFi Control uses a revolutionary wireless technology to allow programming from any device with wireless capability. This workshop will show teachers how, using the STEMSEL WiFi Control, they can undertake coding activities with their students to teach the basics of coding and progress quickly to using digital technologies to drive decisions and control other devices. Participants are encouraged to bring their own device if possible, but a limited number of loan devices will be available.
Who should attend? Any teacher or school leader interested in developing relationships between digital technologies and the traditional core curriculum .
Learning Goals for the teacher:
- Confidence to engage with coding without high-level programming capabilities
- Appreciation of the ‘language’ of coding and computational thinking
- Understanding the basics of coding using STEMSEL WiFi Control and the ezSystem graphical coding interface
- The ability to use digital technologies to drive decision-making
- links between coding and key subject areas like Mathematics and Science
- An understanding of how simple sensors can enhance learning in different subjects.
AITSL standards addressed in this program are 4.5.3, 6.2.3, 3.2.3 and 2.6.3 .
