11:00 - EVENT - SHOWCASE: Ruby the Robot : Event for mLearning Month - September 2017 Website | More Information
Ruby is a NAO robot, NAO is the world’s leading and most widely used humanoid robot for education, healthcare, and research. NAO is 58cm tall, autonomous, and fully programmable robot that can walk, talk and listen. Meet Ruby, see what she can do and explore the problem solving required when coding and opportunities to use Robots in learning and teaching.

Many have seen her guiding and touring through the Futures Observatory and now after more work from our Computer Science students we have enabled more of her functionality and designed new code for her better interact with humans. Some of her new abilities include:

THE RED BALL: Explore with Ruby the problem solving required to manoeuvre obstacles using her feet sensors and cameras located on her body. Then work with her to interact and play with a red ball aiming to shoot a goal, and hearing her interactivity as she recognises either a hit or miss.

WHO AM I: Have a conversation with Ruby as she learns to recognise your face and has a personalised conversation with you. Demonstrating her facial recognition technology and ability to transform a conversation with her artificial intelligence you can engage with the future of soft skills that all artificial intelligent robots will possess.

SIMON SAYS: Watch Ruby follow instructions you give her as she replicates the movements spoken. By interacting in this way, you can see her 25 degrees of freedom and dexterity from her fingers, showing humanoid movements a robot can perform that you have never seen before!

We will have some of our students present during these events to talk about the challenges and successes they had in the project and their foray into a career in coding and robotics.

13:00 - STAFF EVENT - DEMONSTRATION: Using Blackboard Mobile Compatible Tests : Event for mLearning Month - September 2017 Website | More Information
Are you aware of the mobile test creation tool which is compatible with the Blackboard Learn App? If not attend this demonstration using Blackboard’s Mobile Compatible Test as a feature for students to easily complete tests and surveys using their mobile devices.

There are many great applications for this feature, such as, completing Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) while on a field trip, or encouraging students to complete a quick survey on a peer activity, or inviting students to upload diagrams as evidence of their formative assessment.

Using current samples from a number of UWA LMS units, Learning Technologist Ezrina Fewings will inform attendees on how to create a Blackboard Mobile Compatible Test app and developing preloaded feedback as well as providing advice on generating a workflow using the Blackboard Learn App.

This will be a workshop based presentation drawing on Martin’s experience as “a flipper” and also on others from UWA that have been involved in a research project scoping student experiences in flipped classrooms. We will explore what the research shows as well as tips for shifting the focus from teaching to active learning, which is the main aim of shifting face to face engagement between lecturers and students from the delivery of content towards activities engaging the content that students have accessed in other places – usually their local LMS.
