Digital Tech and Math #cserTask3
Students have used Scratch Jr for a Term and are familiar with how to program simple events.
Collect, explore and sort data, and use digital systems to present the data creatively (ACTDIP003)
Lesson 1 – Exploring numbers 1 to 10
Children will draw a sprite relating to the number on different pages in ScratchJr. e.g 1 cat, 2 dogs
Lesson 2 – Programming objects
Children will now use the programming blocks to …

I have already tried visual programming, Daisy Dinosaur, Scratch Jr, Scratch and Code.org and can't get enough of it. So I have tried a variety of different ways for the children to pair program, the most popular one is
1. Buddy class. The older children take the drivers seat and the younger children are the navigators. The older children have been very patient and have also learnt from the younger children.
2. Videoing the lesson with Ipad. One child does the programming e.g Scratch Jr and the other videos what they are doing. At the end of the task…

Digital Tech and Math #cserTask 3
Students have played games in Scratch and are familiar with it as consumers.
The goal of this is for the students to demonstrate their knowledge of shapes through using the blocking code of Scratch.
Lesson 1 – Exploring simple 2D shapes and their properties
Lesson 2 – Understanding the properties of shapes and using that knowledge to move an object around a grid in their math books recording the steps to create the…

Something that I have used in a year 4/5 class has been working in partners to unpack block programmed activities
Background:
Student are familiar with programming language eg integer
Students have explored Scratch.
What you will need:
Laptops
Pair Programming rules
Flowchart cut out shapes and arrows that are laminated
White boards and markers
What to do:
Decide who is the driver and who is the navigator and go through the procedures
They are presented with the flowchart shapes and are challenged to explore their meanings
Stude…
