Lye, Ngit Chan; Wong, Kok Wai; Chiou, Andrew – Interactive Learning Environments, 2013
Educational robotics involves using robots as an educational tool to provide a long term, and progressive learning activity, to cater to different age group. The current concern is that, using robots in education should not be an instance of a one-off project for the sole purpose of participating in a competitive event. Instead, it should be a…

Castledine, Alanah-Rei; Chalmers, Chris – Design and Technology Education, 2011
With the current curriculum focus on correlating classroom problem solving lessons to real-world contexts, are LEGO robotics an effective problem solving tool? This present study was designed to investigate this question and to ascertain what problem solving strategies primary students engaged with when working with LEGO robotics and whether the…

McDonald, Susan; Howell, Jennifer – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2012
This paper describes the use of robotics in an Early Years classroom as a tool to aid the development of technological skills in a creative environment rich with literacy and numeracy opportunities. The pilot project illustrates how a three-phase process can result in the development of: (1) emergent literacy and numeracy, (2) digital access for…

Mills, Kathy A.; Chandra, Vinesh; Park, Ji Yong – Australian Educational Researcher, 2013
This paper demonstrates, following Vygotsky, that language and tool use has a critical role in the collaborative problem-solving behaviour of school-age children. It reports original ethnographic classroom research examining the convergence of speech and practical activity in children's collaborative problem solving with robotics programming…

Renshaw, Peter – Teaching Education, 2017
The centrality of relationships between teachers and students is revealed in the articles in this special issue on alternative schools. This should characterise the mainstream but the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers avoids any reference to care or affect or to the importance of forming ethically informed caring relationships with…

Nicholas, Howard; Ng, Wan – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2012
While the ready-made Lego[TM] Robotics kits are popular in schools and are used by students at both primary and secondary year levels, using the Picaxe microcontroller (chip) to create simple electronic devices, including robotic devices is less popular. The latter imposes an additional challenge as a result of the need to construct the universal…

Attard, Catherine – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2012
In this article, the author explores the value of using simple robotics such as BeeBots and ProBots to enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics in the primary classroom. Before making the decision to use such technologies, it is important that they be evaluated in terms of their affordances and constraints. In other words, teachers need to…

Maud, Ian – Teaching Science, 2008
Teaching Robotics in the classroom involves the use of different strategies to a conventional classroom but yields exceptional outcomes: in most cases students are teaching themselves and may not even realise it! This is "learning by stealth" and produces effective knowledge. Students also develop many additional and complementary skills…

Anderson, Neil – Education in Rural Australia, 2009
This paper and presentation reviews the collective opinion of key Australian researchers concerning the emerging technologies most likely to have a significant impact on learning and teaching in regional, rural and remote areas. It then draws on the conclusions of the Horizon Report (2008) concerning key ICT drivers likely to influence…

Rodrigues, Susan – Australian Science Teachers Journal, 1997
This table illustrates when, why, and how computer-based information technology best lends itself to learning in science classrooms. It aims to illustrate the potential of this technology and some of the thinking and planning that is necessary for successful, effective classroom use. Application types include data collecting devices, spreadsheets,…

Bragg, Leicha A.; Koch, Jessica; Willis, Ashley – Australian Primary Mathematics Classroom, 2017
One way to heighten students' interest in the classroom is by personalising tasks. Through designing Robot Bioglyphs students are able to explore personalised data through a creative and engaging process. By understanding, producing and interpreting data, students are able to develop their statistical literacy, which is an essential skill in…

Callaghan, Noelene – Educational Media International, 2016
This research paper identifies the way in which Minecraft Edu can be used to contribute to the teaching and learning of secondary students via a multiple case research study. Minecraft Edu is recognised as a gamification tool that enables its users to create and evaluate project-based learning activities within a classroom context. Learning…

Newhouse, Christopher Paul; Cooper, Martin; Cordery, Zina – Australian Educational Computing, 2017
This paper reports on a study that investigated the ways that young children interact with discrete programmable digital toys in a free play setting. One intention was to see whether this interaction would address some of the requirements of the Digital Technologies subject in the Australian Curriculum. The study was implemented in two phases in…

Chen, Nian-Shing; Quadir, Benazir; Teng, Daniel C. – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2011
Early school years are an important period to lay out the foundation for learning a second language. In addition to mastering the basic language skills and keeping the learning process fun, promoting a lifelong learning habit should also be emphasised. Motivating elementary school students to learn English and avoiding misconceptions associated…
