This infographic provides an overview overview of the concepts related to computational thinking.
This video explores ways in which students can develop and apply their Digital Technologies knowledge, understanding and skills to create a digital solution through the Curriculum connection of food and fibre. The video is designed for educators who would like to learn how to use a BBC micro:bit to manage the water requirements ...
This PDF provides a line of sight from content descriptions to achievement standards in the Digital Technologies subject in the Australian Curriculum.
This tutorial provides detailed instructions to support the learning of Python, a general purpose programming language. The tutorial is designed for educators who are learning to use Python.
This tutorial provides step-by-step instructions to support the learning of Scratch, a visual programming language. The tutorial is designed for educators who would like to learn how to use Scratch.
This video takes viewers through the transition from visual programming (block-based environments) to general-purpose programming (text based environments). It guides teachers as they assist students to move from block-based programming used in primary schools to general-purpose programming languages used in secondary schools.
This video demonstrates ways in which data can be analysed and visualised. It is the final in a series of four.
Build a simple yet engaging game from the ground up, all within the free block coding program Scratch.Scratch is a browser-based open-source game engine free for anyone to use. Scratch uses block coding, meaning you can learn how to code us-ing pre-programmed blocks, rather than typing out long lines of code to create a ...
This PDF uses colour coding to provide a line of sight between key concepts, content descriptions and achievement standards in the Digital Technologies subject in the Australian Curriculum.
Game Builder is an online resource for teachers and students making their very first videogame, and for those who have some experience already. There’s more to a good game than good code! As with most creative projects, success comes from good ideas and thorough preparation. This resource will take you through the building ...
This resource comprises two activities that allow students to explore the concept of chance in Mathematics. Students use computational
thinking while using a micro:bit as a digital system to generate and collect data. Students implement programs involving branching and iteration in visual and general-purpose programming languages.
This resource provides strategies for assessing students' ability to interpret, process, analyse and represent data using spreadsheets, pivot tables, plotting data and scripting activities. A link to a data set from a koala hospital provides extensive data for students to use. The resource includes maps, graphs and charts, ...
This PDF provides a sequence of activities in which students create algorithms to measure the time taken for a vehicle to travel from a starting line to a finish line. Students connect micro:bits and laser receiver sensors to measure time, then create programs to undertake the timing using visual and general-purpose programming.
This tutorial shows ways in which environmental factors such as lighting and temperature can be measured and improved using micro:bits and sensor boards, and programmed using pseudocode, visual programming and general-purpose programming.
