Personal thoughts on the curriculum review

As the review of the Australian Curriculum is underway, with Digital Technologies and Mathematics being the first subjects in this process, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the opportunities that this review brings. As an Engineer and Computer Scientist, I never had a particularly deep love for Biology, and this is probably not a surprise. When I did Biology at school, cell biology was superficial at best and focussed mainly on the parts that make the cell, and chemical reactions. But this changed in recent times and it is now clear that our cells are not just chemical factories, but sophisticated information processing agents. I have outlined this in the blog 'We are walking supercom

Capture the flag with AI+Robotics: New Free Course

We are very excited to announce the release of our latest Digital Technologies course on the hot topic of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics. We've made it for year 5-8 students. The course is currently free under our COVID-19 policy. It is suitable for remote and self-directed learning. In this course, students get to know artificial intelligence through hands-on experiments. They help an AI navigate a little robot through colourful landscapes. In the process, students get to know artificial neural networks and learn how they can use sensor data to control the power flow to motors. We can't be sure, but we believe we've made the world's first interactive AI. The course is highly immersive
