Year 11 and 12 Automotive Engineering and Technology students saw all the behind-the-scenes action at Barbagello Raceway last week at the WA leg of the Supercars, courtesy of the Western Australian Sporting Car Club. Students saw how the cars are set up and how much time is involved in getting everything right.
Yiyili Community School is located 600km inland from Broome in the Kimberley region of WA, yet its remote location is no barrier to innovation.
Staff and students in the K-10 cohort recently enjoyed a visit from members of the St Stephen’s School Digital Learning Team who spent five days passing on digital skills in the areas of robotics, coding, augmented reality and circuitry.
The team also worked with staff in professional development, provided training resources and technical support and updated Yiyili’s devices and programs.
The Abydos app, developed by St Stephen’s School and Edith Cowan University, has been named a finalist in the Western Australian Information Technology and Telecommunication Awards (WAITTA) INCITE Awards for the Most Transformative Impact on Education.
The gamification app uses the theme of ancient Egypt to teach primary students about fractions, and research has shown a group of Year 6 students who used the app scored 10.5 per cent higher than those who didn’t after just two sessions a week for four weeks using the app.
Abydos has been integrated into classroom teaching for Year 6s at St Stephen’s.
The finalists were announced on Friday, with the winners to be named in June.
Congrats to all involved – such a coup for our innovative School! Best of luck for the June announcement.
