About this Unit
This unit develops in-service teachers’ knowledge and skills in the application of robotics and coding in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines. The unit content and assessments are designed to firstly build teachers’ foundational skills in robotics/coding, and secondly, build teachers’ professional skills in the implementation of robotics/coding in their classrooms. A particular focus of the unit is how robotics/coding can be used to authentically integrate curriculum content from and across the different STEM disciplines through inquiry- and problem-based learning, with the ultimate aim of enhancing student engagement and achievement in the STEM disciplines.
