IMDA ICT Learning Roadmap

Update: Do note that previous ICT Learning Roadmap has lapsed. The new round of programme will be announced some time Q2 2017.   

Nullspace is appointed by Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) as an Infocomm Club Appointed Vendor (ICAV), to conduct IDA ICT Learning Roadmap Courses from 26 Nov 2014 to 31 Mar 2016.

 

For course enquiries, please email us at ict@nullspace.com.sg.

 

If you are an Infocomm Club teacher in an MOE school, kindly email ida_infocommclub@ida.gov.sg for potential funding on these courses.

Course Code: BA-NS-NEW

Target: Upper Primary school students

Software Requirement: Microsoft(R) Office 2007 (or above) – Excel

Hardware Requirement: Computer running Windows or Mac OS, 1 to 2 students per computer

 

Business Analyst Jr (Newbie)

The purpose of this course is to provide students with basic data analytics skills using Microsoft(R) Excel. Microsoft(R) Excel is one the most common data spreadsheet software in use today, and a working knowledge in it is considered a requisite in most workplaces.

 

Part 1 of the course: “Introduction to Microsoft Excel” aims to expose students to commonly used excel functions (sum, mean, median, if) and data charting functionalities.

Part 2 of the course: “Investigative Data” will expose students to doing time series analysis and to identify trends in the data. We will be using data provided by Singapore Department of Statistics on Population and Education. The analysis of the data will be done in the context of Singapore’s culture, history and direction; newspaper clippings and videos will be shown to introduce the topic for that session. At the end students will be encouraged to analyse, infer, and draw conclusions for themselves from the data at hand.

Part 3 of the course: “Investigative Project” will set the students (in groups) to work on analysing Singapore weather data where they will be required to use the skills learnt in Part 1 and Part 2 in answering a given set of questions. Students will then be required to analyse the information on hand and draw conclusions from the data.

Part 3 of the course: “Investigative Project” will set the students (in groups) to work on analysing different country’s health and population data. They will be set to explore questions about the healthcare, life expectancy, and various statistics of a given country, and how it evolves over time. Students will have to supplement their data analysis with research on the various healthcare policies and country development.

Course Code: RJ-NS-NEW

Target: Upper Primary school students

Software Requirement: LEGO® Mindstorms NXT or EV3 programming software

Hardware Requirement: LEGO® Mindstorms NXT or EV3 programming system, AA Batteries for use with LEGO® Mindstorms robotics system. Computer running Windows or Mac OS, 1 computer terminal per robotics system.

 

Roboticist Jr (Newbie)

Nullspace-Robotics-Flow-Chart

The purpose of this course is to provide students with basic robotics skills using LEGO® Mindstorms System. Students will be learning the fundamentals of good robot construction and programming. Maximum student to robot ratio is 4:1, fewer students to one robotics system is preferred.

In this course, students will explore the concept of true/false decision making algorithm through the use of various sensors, ranging from rotational sensor, touch sensor, ultrasonic sensor and light sensor. The progressive class activities are designed to engage the students to apply the lessons learnt.

In this course, students will explore the concept of true/false decision making algorithm through the use of various sensors, ranging from rotational sensor, touch sensor, ultrasonic sensor and light sensor. In addition, key fundamentals of good robot construction and sensor mounting will be taught so that the robots built are structurally sound.

The course will conclude with a mini-mission activity to allow students to integrate and apply the different concepts and lessons learnt together.

Course Code: MJ-NS-NEW

Target: Upper Primary school students

Software Requirement: Arduino 1.0.6 IDE, which is available as a free download here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

Hardware Requirement: Computer running Windows or Mac OS, 1 computer per student. All other necessary electronic components and Arduino micro-controller will be provided as part of the course material.

 

Maker Jr (Newbie)

The purpose of this course is to introduce students to building electronics projects using the Arduino open source electronics prototyping platform. It consists of a micro-controller which can be connected to electronics components such as LEDs or sensors. The micro-controller is the “brain” of the project, it receives input from sensors, interprets the signals and translates them to actions which are output to other components. For example, a student may program an LED to light up (action) whenever the Arduino(brain) detects that a button switch is being pushed (input). Arduino is designed to be simple and easy to learn, allowing students to quickly begin creating their own electronics projects.

The course has two main components:

1) Programming
Students will be taught general programming logic and methodology, and specific functionality of the Arduino language (which is a simplified variant of C).

2) Electronics components
Students will learn the uses of common electronics components such as resistors, LEDs, buzzers and switches etc.

Students will start off by modifying example programs provided with the Arduino software and slowly progress to writing complete programs of their own. Every lesson will involve both programming and experimenting with electronics components. The course culminates with the student building a game as a take-home project, using all the skills and components they have learnt.
