TEACHERS

Completing Introduction to Lego Robotics in the Classroom will contribute 10 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 3.3.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

SUMMARY OF THE COURSE

Over a period of two days, teachers will use a problem-solving approach to the development of a robot designed to attempt the Secondary Search and Rescue course. They will develop assessment tools to apply to their colleagues' efforts and provide them with feedback.

The participants will work in small groups (approx 2-3). Depending on the size of the course, each team may be allocated to one of three tribes.

EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course models the use of a problem based learning approach to address a complex task the participants have no previous experience of.

This addresses the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers:

3.3.2  Select and use relevant teaching strategies to develop knowledge, skills, problem-solving and critical and creative thinking.  

The participants work in groups to develop a structured approach to the problem, and develop assessment tools to assess and provide feedback to other groups.

This addresses the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers:

1.2.2  Structure teaching programs using research and collegial advice about how students learn.

5.1.2  Develop, select and use informal and formal, diagnostic, formative and summative assessment strategies to assess student learning. 

This course is designed to give teachers the confidence to use EV3 robotics in their everyday teaching. It uses a problem based approach using the RoboCup Jnr Secondary Search and Rescue Challenge to demonstrate the differentiation and engagement possiblities of robotics.
