Digital Technologies

Another great term has been completed by the students of AIC Kewdale primary.

Some highlights to look forward to in this terms newsletter are:

  • Exploration of robotics
  • New hardware – Micro:bits
  • Game creation through coding

Year 2

Students were learning about algorithms and the importance of giving precise and clear algorithms. We introduced algorithms by taking visual pictures of LEGO building on iPads.

The second part of our lessons, was students had to write an algorithm to create a potato man. It was very interesting to discover the bug where some students did not write clear algorithms and their partner ended up making a silly looking potato man!

Students continued exploring their knowledge about Ozobots by identifying the codes to command the bot to go certain directions.

Students also revised their knowledge about Ozobots by creating a digital poster on Microsoft word.

Exploring variables and codes on Scratch. Creating challenges such as Animate your Name and using loops/movement blocks.

Exploring game creation on Scratch

We began the term exploring game creations to prepare for the STEM Exhibition. Students used Microsoft Forms to do their games review. In addition, this term we explored coding through Minecraft Education.
