Ever wondered what mood your pet is in? This new lesson plan: How can you tell when your pet is happy? based on the app 'Happy Pets' explores how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to assess images of pets and to predict their mood.
If you are looking for an engaging way to introduce your students to the concepts of artificial intelligence and machine learning, the Digital Technologies Hub have released two excellent videos for that purpose!
The CSER Team are looking forward to delivering two new events:
Gleeson College, in South Australia was one of the first to borrow a CSER Virtual Reality Oculus Quest Kit from the CSER AI, AR and VR National Lending Library. They grabbed this opportunity with gusto and have been able to use the kit across multiple year levels and subject areas. Despite the pandemic, Gleeson students were able to experience virtual travel and connection with international students via their engagement in VR. Melissa O'Loughlin from Gleeson has documented their experience for us to share with the CSER community.
If you have been looking for ideas on how to integrate Augmented Reality related activities into the classroom, this resource is a good place to begin. In November 2020, Helen Kardiasmenos, CSER NSW Project Officer and Dr Rebecca Vivian, CSER Research Fellow, presented a webinar exploring the many possibilities of using Augmented Reality in the classroom.
Last year the Digital Technologies Hub hosted a webinar on using Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR) and Artificial Intelligence in the classroom. Presenters Martin Richards, Content Manager, Digital Technologies Hub (Education Services Australia) and Dr Rebecca Vivian, CSER Research Fellow, presented a webinar introducing educators to the possibilities of using VR, AR and AI in the classroom.
CSER Researcher, Dr Rebecca Vivian, partnered with Education Services Australia to undertake research into inclusive STEM learning and teaching to produce a practical evidence-based guide for teachers based on the 7 Principles for Inclusive STEM learning environments.
This year CSER partnered with the Digital Technologies Hub to deliver a series of webinars covering Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Inclusive STEM design practices, that you can now watch on-demand!
