This bundle provides a great opportunity for students to have fun whilst learning the fundamentals of coding and algorithms.
When students use these action cards in an ‘Unplugged’ environment they are executing instructions socially and collaboratively using commands and concepts applicable to the real world and computer programming.
Your students will love coding and creating algorithms by programming each other to undertake real world tasks in the classroom. They will continually collaborate to refine their code making it as efficient and effective as possible. Students will frequently, fail, revise and succeed using these cards building resilience and learning through trial and error.
Most commonly students use these “action” cards to create instructions to follow as if they were a robot in pairs or teams. One as the coder and the other is the machine or device that must explicitly follow the instructions. Next, they can use these with real robotic and coding languages such as Sphero, Dash and Dot and Scratch to visualize and perform a set of actions before entering those instructions into the device.
This package includes 10 challenges for students to begin straight away but they will begin creating challenges and missions in no time using just the room and resources in which they are located.
Also include Boolean operator cards for students to explore how search engines operate.
