School Robot Challenge 2018 - design a space robot and moonbase (ages 4-12)

This competition is intended to engage and inspire school children and students through the subject of robotics and space exploration. It aims to provide a compelling introduction to computer aided design, robotics, and space exploration through the design and modelling of a virtual robot at work on another planet. The competition is open to all school children and students in the UK from the ages of 4 to 18. There are two competitions: one for ages 4-12 and the other for ages 13-18. What will I learn? The software accompanying this challenge (links below) will provide participants with a basic introduction to 3D computer aided design and modelling, as well as providing a medium to explore links between creative art and computing. This competition will allow entrants to explore and visualise their own ideas about the future uses of robots in space, and aims to be inspiring, educational and fun. Who is running the competition? The competition is run by the EPSRC UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems Network (UK-RAS), a network of UK universities specialising in Robotics and Autonomous Systems. It is part of a family of competitions organised for the UK Robotics Week, which runs from 21 - 29 June 2018. A panel of judges, consisting of leading scientists and engineers, will select the winning designs in each age category. What are the judges looking for? The judging panel will select their favourite robot and planetary environment. We are looking for creative entries: this could be a robot servicing a spaceport or outpost, or a robot undertaking scientific investigation and exploration on an unusual planet, or any other application of robots in space that you can think of! The judges will choose winning designs that are innovative, interesting, fun, compelling, technically advanced and visually appealing. How do I enter the competition? All you need to do is follow the instructions outlined in the instruction pack! If you get stuck please email us. The competition is split into 2 categories by age group: 4 - 12yrs and 13 - 18yrs.

Technology : Consumer Profile Cards (activity)

Technology : Consumer Profile Cards (activity)

Being a Designer means stepping out of your comfort zone and forgetting about your own preferences & needs. However, I have noticed that this is sometimes lost in classroom practice. Students are given a design brief or problem to solve, yet the final outcome is bias and based upon what THEY like and want. Students design something for themselves that they can take home and use - This resource prevents this from happening! 12 different consumer cards that are purposely written in a paragraphs, so that students can dissect the information, like a reading comprehension, pulling out the important facts that they need to know. This will show a detailed understanding. The cards include a range of people that have a variety of likes, needs and wants. This encourages students to choose a suitable consumer that is relevant to the problem that they have been asked to solve. (For example, if the problem is to design a product to help the elderly, then the Baby consumer profile card would not be suitable - Students should be expected to work this out after class discussion). Print on A4 or A3 paper and laminate!

Technology Challenge Cards

Technology Challenge Cards

How are you challenging your most able students? Challenge Cards are a great way to embed high level learning activities into every lesson and more importantly… Students love completing them! Ofsted regularly report that more able students are not being challenged enough in most subjects. Some leave primary school with high SATS results, yet fail to leave secondary school with top GCSE grades. Challenge Cards have been created as an alternative to ‘more of the same’ extension tasks. Cards have been developed for individual year groups and contain either theory or design related activities - activities relate to the scheme of work but are always topics that students have not studied yet. Each card includes a checklist which allows students to tick off success criteria as they work through the activity. Challenge Cards also include house point rewards which are dependant on how well the student has completed the challenge. There is also a space for a teacher comment. Staple the cards to the corner of student booklets so that challenge activities are evident in work scrutiny. Students also enjoy finding these in their books once work has been marked and handed back to them in fix-it time. Cards should be printed in black and white on bright green A4 card. This makes them stand out in class books and look appealing to students. (Includes: Six different KS3 cards as examples) This resource is fully editable using Microsoft PowerPoint

Assessing and Recording without the Exercise Book

Assessing and Recording without the Exercise Book

Children often know more about science that we think; sometimes they just donʼt have the skills to write down their ideas. I wrote this book because I have a strong belief that all children, whatever their literacy levels, should be given the opportunity to share what they know about science. Over the years, Iʼve developed a range of alternative recording methods that allow children to express their knowledge and learning. These have been tried and tested in the classroom. This book outlines these methods, gently guiding the reader through each one. I cover what each recording method looks like, the reason behind using it, some ideas on how to incorporate it into a lesson and how to use it to assess children. My hope is that this book will show teachers that there are ways to record and assess science that are fun and creative and that generate enthusiasm in the classroom. Most importantly - they donʼt involve an exercise book. By using these methods youʼll find that children, particularly those who lack the ability to get things down on paper, will demonstrate an amazing science understanding. They just needed to be given the chance to express it their way! This book was written for primary Teachers but the ideas can be used in secondary schools as well.

3D Printing in the Primary Curriculum Guide

3D Printing in the Primary Curriculum Guide

Developing 3D design and printing skills can begin in the Primary school. Schools can embed 3D printing across the school at all levels and in multiple subject areas, using it as a tool to increase pupil engagement and attainment. This guide has been developed by The CREATE Education Project to provide Primary Schools with an overview of how 3D printing can be utilised within a Primary school setting across all ages, levels and curriculum areas, including: > Getting started. > 3D printing skills progression – a complete progression route with suggested projects for each stage. This takes pupils from total beginners designing in 2D through to them being able to design their own 3D models. The progression route can be applied from Reception upwards. > 3D printing across the curriculum – details, examples and ideas for how 3D printing can be used across the curriculum with a dedicated section for every Primary subject area as well as cross-curricular and business enterprise ideas. > Lots of project ideas and links to further resources and case studies. > Further support and professional development. This is an introductory resource to allow you explore the opportunities for 3D printing and to develop a plan for introducing 3D printing in the classroom across all ages and subjects in order to maximise the opportunities for 3D printing in school and develop pupil’s skills. You can access more free resources at www.createeducation.com If you don't have access to a 3D printer, you can borrow one to run a project in school using the free CREATE Education loan scheme, learn more at www.createeducation.com/loan-scheme

Creating a Personalized Leaning Environment using the Moodle Learning Management System

Creating a Personalized Leaning Environment using the Moodle Learning Management System

Personalized Learning, the ability for students to learn anything, anytime, anywhere, based on their desires and needs, is expected to transform education. Many influential thinkers have already stated so and major corporations have already introduced Personal Learning Environments to make it happen. But what if you can not afford the current options? This paper examines the creation of a Personalized Learning Environment within the Open Source Moodle environment. It considers a design framework and and the existing capabilities to meet it. The paper concludes, that while a full scale Personalized Learning Environment may not be possible in the current Moodle ecosystem, a simpler Personalized Learning Environment is possible. Its creation and use may allow for the transformation of education in areas that can not currently afford it.
