The Digital Technologies Hub (DT Hub), hosted by Education Services Australia, is full of resources to support schools with implementing the Digital Technologies curriculum. Today we are shining a spotlight on one of the many excellent resources on the Hub, particularly if you would like to know more about Artificial Intelligence. The DT Hub have a comprehensive resource outlining the key elements of AI, its connections with the Australian Curriculum, links to resources and lesson ideas, apps, games and some wonderful case studies. You will also find career examples and specific links to year level content descriptors.
We have three exciting Professional Learning opportunities to share:
Virtual Reality offers great novelty and entertainment opportunities but it also has more serious real world applications and potential for much more in the future.
This lesson plan is suitable for Year 9-10 but can be adapted down to Year 5-6.
If you are thinking about integrating emerging technologies into your classroom but need some background understanding on this exciting area, the Quick Guide is a great place to start.
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.
