dc.description.abstractThis paper provides a summary of research undertaken of a project which aimed to build professional knowledge and understanding of classroom teachers to support learning by students in upper primary classes in the area of microprocessors and robotics through the provision of PikBlok resources; to communicate and share learnings of project teachers; and, to generate data to inform Curriculum Branch to ensure that Queensland is well placed to respond to emerging opportunities in microprocessors and robotics. The project, implemented by Education Queensland, Australia, involved nominated teachers and students from 17 schools located in 3 Education regions. Key findings are reported, as well as recommendations to inform more widespread introduction of microprocessor programming and robotics in schools.en_US
