Is it possible to teach Artificial Intelligence (AI) in primary and secondary classrooms? We think so and have launched two new courses for K-12 teachers!
In Term 1, 2019 Casa Mia Primary School students in Bassendean had the opportunity for some incursions with Robin McKean, a Project Officer from the University of Adelaide’s Computer Science Education Research Group (CSER). She introduced the students to the concept of Algorithms, a sequence of specific instructions to be followed to perform a function or solve a problem, particularly by a computer.
Vasse Primary School has been lucky enough to receive fabulous resources from the CSER team. We obtained the micro:bit kit for our weekly girl coding club. Our students enjoyed the challenge of learning and implementing robotics.
