Vesna Suvala▸ U2: Algorithms & Programming

I've tried Blocky games maze. This was a great learning and reminding experience. First few were an easy ones, but the last one was challenging. I had to stop and think how to solve this and also try out blocks one by one to figure out what to do next. I think this would be a great learning resource because students can learn step by step, learn from their mistakes and use try and error method. Visual programming gives students an opportunity to understand how loops work, why it's important to decompose and debug a code. And a great way to do pair program…

Task Three: Digital Tech + Maths!
This activity was designed for Grades Five and Six. Using Gimp (or any other form of stop motion) students created a .gif animation, demonstrating the binary counting system. The students used binary counting cards in an unplugged lesson and also looked through a website I made with multimedia information on comparing base ten and base two counting, electricity and switches as well as what transistors are. Students used milliseconds to calculate the timing of each frame. You will need to click on the images to see the whole fra…

I have already tried visual programming option 1:
I have used See-Saw with my students, although recently there have been some concerns with privacy. I liked it because students could upload images of their coding or unplugged algorithms, provide a video or drawn markup to show their thinking and then seek feedback from their peers. I found this a great way for students to work collaboratively and for them to share ideas and conversation about their work. This then became their learning journal as their year progressed.
