Kate Beeson▸ U1: Introduction

Hi Everyone,
My name is Kate and I am a curriculum coordinator in the Northern suburbs of Adelaide. I work with 12 schools and 250 teachers. I really enjoyed the F-6 Foundations course and have used so much of the learning from that course but am now wanting to move teachers further with their technologies learning with 'Next Steps' sessions which I am hoping to get ideas from through this course! Looking forward to learning with you!

Lesson 2 – Plan a route for Beebot. Create a set of instructions or flow chart for others to use and program Beebot. Can they program Beebot to the same place.
Lesson 3 – Compass points and angles. What angles does Beebot turn. Can these be linked to the points on a Conpass?

This book tells the story of a little boy who find a penguin at his doorstep. He then comes up with a plan to get him back home. I would use Scratch or Blockly to design a course for the boy to use. Flowcharts could be created in order for decomposition and steps to be followed. There is also an animation of the story which could be used as an extension. It covers the following: Generating and Designing (ACTDIP019) Design, modify and follow simple algorithms involving sequences of steps, branching, and iteration (repetition).
