    Everybody Dance Nao is a competition that enables students to learn about advanced humanoid robots and have some fun. Teams of three students work together to program a 45 second dance routine for a Nao robot. 

    The team from The Brainary will be there to help teachers and students along the way. Schools can register up to three teams (of three students each).

    Registrations close October 18th, and then teachers will be contacted with more details. Final dances must be uploaded for judging by November 20th. 

    Ten teams will be selected to come to the Everybody Dance Nao finale.

    Digital Technologies Workshops are offered through 2018 by DLTV on behalf of the Australian Computing Academy (for the University of Sydney).

    The workshop is a full-day training session to prepare teachers F-10 to teach the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies. The workshop provides an introduction of the concepts and goals of the Digital Technologies curriculum, as well as providing teachers with practical programming assistance to deliver the new curriculum in their classrooms.

    The workshops will involve a curriculum overview, followed by a programming introduction using the Australian Digital Technologies Challenges being developed by the ACA.

    Attendees are asked to bring a laptop computer and power supply.

    Example Activities

    • Crypto unplugged DiC activity (rot cipher)

    • ACA Challenge - Cookie Clicker

    • ACA Challenge - Python Turtle (Flags or Snow HoC)

    • Visual and text programming

    • Blockly Turtle

    • Python Biology

    • Resources and Activities Roadshow

    Who Should Attend?

    • Primary and secondary teachers looking to improve their understanding of the Digital Technologies curriculum

    • Teachers and technology leaders seeking resources to support the implementation of the curriculum

    Presenter

    Suitable for teachers of Year Levels 3-10, this workshop will introduce coding for the game-changing BBC micro:bit device.

    Participants will :

    • create their first programs for the micro:bit, 
    • push on with visual (block) coding, or have the option to split off for General Purpose (text) coding in Python,
    • explore how to use the micro:bit to address different strands of the Victorian Digital Technologies Curriculum in the classroom,
    • get hands-on with physical tech by connecting sensors and other electronic modules to the device,
    • discover more resources to go further with this device.

    This content is relevant if:

    • you have never coded or taught coding before,   or
    • you have experience with visual (block) coding, such as with Scratch,   or
    • you are ready to explore General Purpose programming.


    About the presenters 

    Sanjin Dedić has a B.Eng in Mechatronic Systems majoring in Robotics and Computer Vision and spent several years working industry as an Engineer. He then retrained as a teacher and taught Systems Engineering and Digital Technologies at a secondary level. Recently he has been developing a series of technology programs for G.A.T.E.WAYS (gifted and talented education) covering everything from coding, robotics, applied mathematics and microcontrollers. These programs have been delivered to students in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and Queensland. As a head of eLearning at Techxellent he has combined his technological expertise with his educational experience to create innovative teacher training programs and resources.


    Nathan Alison taught Digital Technologies, VCE Computing and Software Development in Victoria for 11 years before beginning work for DLTV. 

    He brings a background in Computer Systems Engineering and years of hobby coding, as well as a keen desire to help teachers with more complex Computer Science concepts through clear explanations and relevant activities.

    This workshop is for teachers who already have a solid grasp of basic programming concepts: variables, iteration (loops) and conditionals (if-else statements).

    It is targeted at teachers of Years 7-10.


    In this workshop, attendees will learn how to import websites, tweets and published books into Python and subsequently analyse the data using a variety of tools.

    Outcomes:

    Participants will tackle 3 computational thinking problems. By the end of the workshop, they should be able to:

    • Install web scraping and Python text analysis modules like Scrapy and TextBlob.
    • Write Python functions and organise them into a module.
    • Analyse tweets, books and blogs for sentiment polarity (the general mood of the text).
    • Analyse tweets books and blogs for objectivity (the precise unambiguous use of language).
    • Deduce general themes of any piece of text using TextBlob functions.

    Python is an interpreted text based general purpose programming language and is also the only professional programming language that was designed with beginners in mind; it is intuitive and easy to use.
