Description

Are you ready for the future of education and learning?

Do you want to help develop an automated teaching and learning resource for you, your colleagues and future staff and students of this university and beyond? Are you interested in digital research methods?

Welcome to ‘Teacherbot Takes Over’! TTO is a Twitterbot developed for the E-learning & Digital Cultures (1) MOOC (2) as a way of automatically replying to student tweets with useful answers and resources.

For Innovative Learning Week you will have the opportunity to develop the Teacherbot on the theme of digital research methods. Not only will you have the opportunity to contribute your knowledge about digital research methods by writing useful responses to student queries, but you’ll also get to play with the concept of automation and programming for teaching and learning. You can decide what you would want a Teacherbot to do for you and make it happen!

Introductory workshops will be held on Monday 15 February at 1.30pm and online at 3.30pm. These will introduce the world of Twitterbots and show you how to programme the Teacherbot for yourself. You will be introduced to computational thinking and a simple “if this then that” logic. You won’t need any technical knowledge to operate Teacherbot as the interface has been designed to make programming accessible to all! Once you’ve attended the workshop, the opportunity to develop the Teacherbot will continue for the whole of ILW … but who knows what Teacherbot is planning for your future ….
