Caroline Budgen▸ U2: Algorithms & Programming


Recently, while working with some year 6 students who were creating a basic quiz game on Scratch that asked questions about capital cities, a student had a “bug” with their if/else statements. Every time they put the correct answer in, the “else” response appeared rather than the “if” response. Being fairly new to coding we problem solved together and still could not find the solution as the coding appeared correct. An activity in response to that:

Partner sits next to the student and programs and works through some problem solving strategies. If this still does not bring the bug to light, the partner enters the same “code” on their own computer step-by-step (this is much easier with a simple program, with few steps, like scratch). Perhaps along the way they would notice a difference between the programming. #cserTask1
