Pearta Nolan's curator insight, June 5, 2014 9:40 PM

RALfie (Project 4 - Remote laboratories, 2014) short for Remote Access Laboratories for fun, innovation and education is a project that promotes the understanding and performance in utilising different technologies.  This can be completed through the use of remote access promoting students understanding and competence within the Australian Curriculum Technologies (ACARA, 2014) strand.  Direct alignment between RALfie and the content descriptors for technologies is evident where students are asked to explore and use a range of digital systems (ACTDIK007) then in later years they will investigate the main components of digital systems and use their basic functions and interactions (ACTDIK014).

Whilst completing the RALfie activities on campus many activities were completed.  The activity that I completed included the LEGO Mindstorm set and software program (2014) which enabled us to use our mignonette by inputting relevant data to make the mignonette move.  This activity was a great opportunity for me to learn and have the hands on experience necessary to be able to implement it into a school environment.  I believe that the potential application for RALfie is definitely necessary, many school are already implementing LEGO robotics kits now all they need is the technical advice to successfully implement within the classrooms.
