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…
Hi, I'm Vesna. I'm a secondary school computer science teacher currently in Croatia, but I will be moving to Adelaide in May. Hopefully this course will help me learn everything about Australian curriculum, and help me to prepare for starting my Australian teacher career. So far, it's been great 🙂
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…
We are moving our MOOC Communities to WordPress!
As you would be aware, Google+ is being closed by Google. After consideration, we have decided to move our existing CSER MOOC Google+ Communities to WordPress, where you can continue to browse and actively contribute to a shared CSER MOOC Community.
We have over 15,000 members across our four CSER MOOC Google+ Communities, and we greatly value your contributions and insights supporting the implementation of the Digital Technologies curriculum. CSER will transfer all of the existing posts for each of o…
Coding Classroom's 1st Scratch 3.0 for Kids Workshop at Schoolab, Paris (March 16, 2019)
3-6: My students used Mycreate (onion skin motion capture app) on iPad to create a 'Videoscribe' like presentation of a piece of written work. They then recorded themselves reading the piece. By doing this they could work on their expression and diction, use planning techniques to map out their video capture sequence.
I like this video as an inspiration piece:
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.
Hi. I teach F-6 as a specialist. Rushing this through.
My name is Jerrod and I teach Digital Tech in two Victorian schools. I have done the foundation course and this is an obvious extension.
Hi I chose the CSFirst Google activity. I felt the tutorial was good but you always just have to trial and error (debug) to see what works and how it works but it was quite fun.
