Vision Australia has launched a hands-on educational STEM tool designed to teach skills in computer coding and programming to young students who are blind.
With STEM education front and centre, there is a growing focus on the importance of teaching students to innovate, think critically and problem solve. VEX Robotics is honing in on this need with its engaging hands-on solutions that encourage collaborative student-centred learning.
Sarah Moran, CEO of the Girl Geek Academy, explains how teaching algorithmic systems and design thinking can engage a whole class in technology; and how today’s hackers, hustlers and hipsters are using skills that extend far beyond coding.
To mark the 50th anniversary of first moon landing, Moonhack will see students from around the globe take part in a space-themed coding exercise, that aims to break the record for the most kids coding at the same time.
Aiming to demonstrate how computer coding translates to the real world, LEGO Education has launched innovative new classroom technology globally and commissioned global research into how children are learning in the 21st century.
