Coding TPL Day for Primary Teachers

Teachers working in pairs will be guided through a series of simple exercises to allow them to gain a basic understanding of the Scratch and Fliprobot programming software and how it can be used to program simple robots. They will then be posed with challenges to allow them to implement their newfound programming skills to solve problems with the robots each related to a different KLA. Through active participation in the activities, teachers will gain an understanding of how they can use a range of robotics platforms in their classrooms.


What do participants do?

During this session, we will look at coding using Blockly and applying this to the Fliprobot robotics platform.

The Fliprobot programming interface is built on Blockly, similar to Scratch, and designed to be intuitive, so most adults can gain a functional understanding of the platform after completing a few sample activities under the guidance of an experienced educator. Students who use this platform gain a functional understanding of how programming and robotics can be used to solve real-world problems. Additionally, with a small amount of functional knowledge of the programming platform, a teacher can see how robots can be used across science and technology, numeracy and literacy lessons.

NSW Teachers

NESA will no longer endorse providers or register professional development in the way it has done in the past.

On 21 July 2020, the Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning requested that the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) undertake an immediate review of its process for endorsing professional development (PD) providers and courses. The internal review has been completed and the Minister has announced that the Accreditation of Professional Development Courses Policy (the Policy) will immediately replace the existing Endorsement of Professional Development Providers and Courses Policy (February 2019).

The judgement about the quality of non-accredited PD will be made by teachers. The priority areas, draft principles, criteria and application requirements for NESA Accredited PD
will be published on the NESA website and communicated by the end of 2020. NESA will also publish principles for effective professional learning and criteria to guide providers
in evaluating current and future courses to ensure they meet the quality standards expected by NESA.
