Transcript of Robotics and the Australian Technologies Curriculum

In recognition of outstanding achievement, teams may receive a Certificate of Achievement in
Engineering Principles and Systems
Digital Technology
Materials and Technology
Collaborating and Managing
This curriculum mapping project was facilitated by Michael Schofield from UNSW and sponsored by Google through the CS4HS program. The team include Damien Kee (QLD) Greig Tardiani (NSW) Gerald Elias (ACT) Susan Bowler (TAS) and Bronwyn Moreton (NSW).

Robotics and the Australian Technologies Curriculum
Digital Technologies

Knowledge and understanding

Digital Systems
• the components of digital systems: hardware, software and networks and their use

Representation of data
• how data are represented and structured symbolically

Processes and Production skills

Collecting, managing and analysing data
Creating digital solutions by:
• defining
• designing
• implementing
• evaluating
• collaborating and managing

Design and Technologies

Knowledge and understanding

Technologies and society
• the use, development and impact of technologies in people’s lives

Technologies contexts
• technologies and design across a range
of technologies contexts

Processes and Production skills

Creating designed solutions by:
• investigating
• generating
• producing
• evaluating
• collaborating and managing

What are your initial thoughts to solving this problem?
Can you break down the problem into smaller problems (decomposition)?
What are the important things to address? (abstraction)
What constitutes a ‘good’ solution? (criteria for evaluation)
Is there anything you need to learn? (knowledge and skills software / hardware / other?)
Do you have all the resources you need? (project planning)
How much time do you think you need to finish?

Digital Technology Content Descriptors
ACTDIP017 - Define problems in terms of data and functional requirements, and identify features similar to previously solved problems
ACTDIP027 - Define and decompose real-world problems taking into account functional requirements and economic, environmental, social, technical and usability constraints
ACTDIK038 - Precisely define and decompose real-world problems, taking into account functional and non-functional requirements and including interviewing stakeholders to identify needs
Design and Technologies
ACTDEK020 - Investigate how forces or electrical energy can control movement, sound or light in a designed product of system
ACTDEP024 - Critique needs or opportunities for designing and investigate materials, components, tools, equipment and processes to achieve intended designed solutions
ACTDEK031 - Analyse how motion, force and energy are used to manipulate and control electromechanical systems when designing simple, engineered solutions
ACTDEP035 - Critique needs or opportunities for designing and investigate, analyse and select from a range of materials, components, tools, equipment and processes to develop design ideas
ACTDEK043 - Investigate and make judgments on how the characteristics and properties of materials are combined with force, motion and energy to create engineered solutions
ACTDEP048 - Critique needs or opportunities to develop design briefs and investigate and select an increasingly sophisticated range of materials, systems, components, tools and equipment to develop design ideas

The Australian Technologies Curriculum provides students with the opportunity to
gain knowledge and experience in

Design and Technology and Digital Technologies.

Robotics is an ideal way to put theory into practice in a collaborative learning environment.
