UNSW & Arludo
Workshop: Using technology to easily and quickly teach science and data literacy in primary and secondary classrooms in an engaging way
(Workshop videos launching Monday 19 April 2021)
In this workshop, I will show you how simple it is to use Arludo apps and worksheets to teach science and explore data in real time. You’ll be able to try some of the apps and see the data that would result from your students playing. You’ll also see examples of the worksheets and how they can be used in teaching. Each of these tools provide teachers with a way to engage students in critical and analytical thinking in an intuitive, engaging, and fun way.
Michael is an Associate Professor at UNSW Sydney. An award winning evolutionary biologist and science communicator, Michael explores the role the social environment has on how individuals develop and behave. These interests have resulted in him working on a number of different species throughout his career from birds, to spiders, to crickets, and now humans. Michael also uses videogames to explore human behaviour and choices. Using what he’s, Michael is creating videogames through his company Arludo that help teachers and students around the world easily perform science experiments to learn more about the world around them.
