Year 4/5: Flipaclip Review

Learning intention: I can plan, create and communicate ideas, information and online collaborative projects, applying agreed protocols.

Goal: Work with one partner to make a review of the FlipaClip app using iPads and laptops. Your review is to be created using Office365 and include the following sections:

How the app works
A rating
Pros and cons
Screen shots.

Options include Sway, PowerPoint or Word

Year 4/5: Dash & Dot

Children will be creating short algorithms in the ‘Blockly’ app to complete some short missions using our robot friends Dash & Dot

Mission 1. Drive around a chair that is approx. 1 metre away from you
Mission 2. Place two chairs 1 metre apart and have Dash drive to the chair on the left, then to the chair on the right
Mission 3. Have Dash drive around a table and then say “Cranbourne Carlisle in the house!”
Mission 4. Set up 4 chairs and have Dash drive to all four chairs and dance at the end

In between your missions please trial the ‘FlipaClip’ app we have recently installed

Year 2: Blockly

As we continue to explore visual programming through the Year 2 children are using ‘Blockly’ coding where they drag and drop options. These options create an algorithm the program follows. This week we used Minecraft, which had everyone’s attention!

Year 3: Made With Code reviews

In Digital Technologies we will explore the use of visual programming over the next few weeks using the Made With Code website. Originally created to encourage females to work with Code, this website provides several fun and engaging activities for children (and adults!) to try.

We will create a Made With Code review document in Word Online and share it with some classmates using Office365.

Curriculum links: Individually and with others, plan, create and communicate ideas and information safely, applying agreed ethical and social protocols (VCDTDI022) and Develop simple solutions as visual programs (VCDTCD024)

Year 2: Course 1

To complete the term, just one week after our algorithm post test let’s take an opportunity to complete Course 1 from’s Computer Science course!
