Event description
Expose yourself to the world of coding, Arduinos and wearable tech with Ringo Dingrando.

About this Event

“There can be infinite uses of the computer and of new age technology, but if the teachers themselves are not able to bring it into the classroom and make it work, then it fails.”

– Nancy Kassebaum

In recent years there has been an explosive growth in demand for graduates capable of creating new types of software, AI, robots and wearable technologies. New curricular frameworks have emerged at both school and university levels, aimed at building capacity in students and filling this emerging needs gap. Unfortunately, educators often lack the time and support to explore these resources and identify the tangible ways in which they relate to classroom practice.

This is the perfect workshop for those interested in “taking the leap” into the world of programming, robotics, and wearable tech in a supportive and hands-on environment. Spend two-days either beginning your journey or refining existing skills through truly personalised coaching and creative experiences.

You will also get to take home all of the gear used during the workshop so you can continue your learning journey!

Who is it for?

  • Educators who are interested in programming, circuitry, and robotics across K12
  • Educators who have no coding or programming skills are welcome
  • Community members and people outside of education
  • Students 13 and older

What will you do?

  • Learn to use a text-based coding language for the Arduino
  • Integrated lights, motors, and sensors into physical computers
  • Design a robotic controller
  • Create and sew a piece of wearable tech
  • Network and collaborate with like minded educators

What will you walk away with?

  • Understanding of basic coding and physical computing
  • Your own Arduino kit, Lilpad and other accessories
  • Tangible ways to implement these tools and skillsets into your classroom practice

About the Facilitator

Ringo teaches Robotics and Design Technology at the International School of Manila. In 2011 he began ISM’s high school robotics program and has been immersed in that field ever since. His students build robots with Arduino and VEX hardware, and they compete both locally and internationally. Ringo has a passion for spreading the joy of robotics with both kids and teachers. When not building robots or laser-cutting, Ringo enjoys spending time with his wife Jillian and his two young boys. He also enjoys running and rocking out on drums.

You can follow him on Twitter or through his blog.
