Computing Animation Plan using Purple Mash To Animate

Computing Animation Plan using Purple Mash To Animate

A unit of six lesson plans for use with Year One. If you have Purple Mash you can use these lesson plans in a cross-curricular way to go with a class book you are reading. The animation can be used to create a scene from the story or to story board the story as a whole. I will be using these lesson plans to retell “Belonging” by Jeannie Baker however it would be just as effective showing different characters interacting in a scene in a story.

Coding, Collaboration, Communication and Curriculum in Finland

Coding, Collaboration, Communication and Curriculum in Finland

Computer science nurtures problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. The world is increasingly run by software and we need more diversity among those people who are building it. Not all students will be software developers or writers, doctors or translators, but we are already surrounded by technology and even more so in the future. The main point is to provide a basic understanding of society, living environment and fields of science and thus provide equal opportunities for all the learners. Understanding how computers work and how to use them well, gives children skills and knowledge to succeed in global competition and life generally. Year 3 pupils were not only taught the basics of coding, but they were taught to teach other classes the magic of coding. They have taught around 200 other children and teachers in Finland and India (via video) the Magic of Coding. You can learn more about the Coding Ambassadors here or email for an online course including videos and lesson plan for collaborative coding lessons.
