Actura Australia’s PD Course NESA Accredited
Actura Australia’s Professional Development Course NESA Accredited
Q1 2018 Edition
Actura Australia’s FlipRobot has been designed to be a complete STEAM robotics learning solution. While the FlipRobot itself and the FlipCode coding environment are very important parts of the solution we also wanted to provide the necessary tools to assist teachers wishing to implement the course as part of their lesson plan. One part of this is the ACARA compliant FlipRobot curriculum which includes a full program design and teaching resources. The other part is the creation of a two-day professional development program to ensure teachers have the knowledge and practice they require to bring FlipRobot to their classroom.

Actura is pleased to announce that our two-day professional development course has now been accredited by NESA, so the time invested by teachers for the course will now be rewarded as counting towards their professional development hours. The course has also been accredited in Queensland, Victoria and ACT.
The PD course developed by Actura covers all aspects of the FlipRobot learning solution in a collaborative environment with a primary focus on hands-on learning. During the course teachers will;
- Physically program FlipRobot via the variable control board
- Complete coding exercises and challenges
- Participate in group curriculum building with other teachers
- Understand the fundamentals behind the FlipRobot hardware, software and curriculum
The first professional development sessions have been organised for the 5th and 11th of April in NSW with PD courses in the other states and territories to follow.
If you are interested in participating in one of the FlipRobot professional development session please contact Lucas Watson, firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will let you know of the upcoming dates, times and venues for the professional development course.
