The Brainary – best known for engaging humanoid robots - has launched teacher training modules that cover a wide range of robots and cater for teachers of all skill levels. The modules provide teachers with the skills and tools to deliver highly engaging robotics and coding lessons that cover key requirements of the new Australian Digital Technologies Curriculum.
Incorporating the Arts in STEM programs enriches learning by leveraging the critical and creative thinking skills fostered in the arts and humanities to create a more rounded student experience. Such an approach places emphasis on cross-curricular applications for robotics, such as utilizing the multilingual capability of Nao humanoids to enrich LOTE classes or creating students-led projects exploring the ways that robots can be programmed help people in society.
Training sessions are delivered onsite, are hands-on, and utilise popular robotic platforms including NAO humanoid robots, EZ-Robot, Sphero and BinaryBots.
Training can be tailored to suit teachers with little or no programming experience through to those with considerable knowledge. Depending on skill level, participants can choose to cover drag and drop programming, basic python coding, and ‘EZ-Script’ (a variation of ‘C’); The Brainary’s trainers provide sample projects and assist teachers in designing engaging lessons.
