Win A Robot World Cup Football Drawing Competition

Win A Robot World Cup Football Drawing Competition

Last week I found a small UK tech company which was giving out great computer prizes and no-one was entering them. I decided to use them to create a drawing competition in my class - after all what is more motivational to a class than a great chance of winning! I used it to share ideas about what makes a great invention. We discussed ideas of what would or would not win - then created our work of art. INVENT THE 2098 WORLD CUP Future Inventors, we have a new challenge for this week. The World Cup is about to start and it got us thinking: what will the 2098 World Cup look like? Flying referees? Virtual stadiums? Techno-vuvuzelas? Submit your ideas and the winner gets a FREE kit and see it become a project on Club Make! We accept ALL ideas: practical, fun to absolutely bonkers. Entering the challenge is super easy: just draw your idea and share it below! They accept submissions until the 24th of June at http://bit.ly/WinARobot.

Getting your head around while loop - ITERATION for beginners.

Getting your head around while loop - ITERATION for beginners.

Understanding variables and loops are the most significant aspects of coding. It is important for students in early stages to grasp the concept of how loops work if the are to be successful candidates for computer science. This power point presentation is a scaffold building fundamental steps required in understanding and applying loops using python. Students must already know how to use basic input and output functions in python. The language and terminology used is simple enough for a non specialist to use and teach a coder at beginner level. The python idle software is available to download for free at https://www.python.org/downloads/. After students have fully grasp the concept of loops and how they work, they extension task will provide a challenge for them to apply their knowledge, using computational thinking to improve their code.

[GCSE+IGCSE] Mini Project: Pentathlon

[GCSE+IGCSE] Mini Project: Pentathlon

This is another of the mini projects that I get my students to complete in preparation for completing the coursework. Lesson Overview Depending on ability level, we start by completing flow charts and pseudocode to complete the design of the program. I sometimes prepare a complete one, but blank out some of the steps to give to my weaker students. Better students I will give blank designs to and somewhere in between for the other students. At end of this lesson, we look at how the code works In preparation for the next lesson, I get the students to watch the video as a homework task. The next lesson, the students complete the program using their pseudocode / flow charts completed in previous lesson. If they are still struggling, they can watch the video again in class time, as well as me able to wander around and help. Students who are better at coding will easily be able to add more functionality to this project Included Zipped file contains: 2 CSV files required for the project and the completed solution file (1 of the CSV files is the file writing part) Video Support of completing the solution Whilst this is mainly aimed at students, it would be useful PD for any Computer Science teachers who are still struggling to understand the complex programming side of the course What this teaches File Reading from CSV file File writing back to CSV file Storing Data in 2D arrays Functions/Procedures Parameter Passing Complex Functions (Finding Minimum algorithm using 2D arrays) Combining

Reconfigurable iOS Apps for Students, Teachers, and Parents

Reconfigurable iOS Apps for Students, Teachers, and Parents

NthLib is a set of Mac and iOS tools that are designed to enable non-professionals to build, configure, and deploy iOS apps for iPad and iPhone. Once the apps are built, they are easily configured, reconfigured and multiconfigured for various user groups. The key feature that sets NthLib apart from the sea of app builders available is multiconfigurability. A single app can be configured and reconfigured for any group or sub-group of users. A single user can install any number of app configurations and can switch between them with a single tap. This is finished turnkey software that I have used for several years to build and distribute my own iOS apps. I’ve recently made the tools available for 3rd-party use. The library is described in detail in the docs linked below. Briefly, K-12 use cases are endless. NthLib configurations provides a virtual venue for displaying work done by students that is suitable for public distribution and viewing. Student created content could range from artwork, photography, and videos, to short stories, poetry, and history papers - there are virtually no limits. See the link below that lists system requirements. The target audience can be other students, faculty, and parents. For schools that are already working with iOS devices, entry into NthLib provides easy access to app development and deployment. NthLib was originally modeled as a subscription service for small and mid-size enterprise. For now, I am offering the service to educators for use free of charge. And for subscribers who take me up on this offer, I will extend the free part indefinitely. In other words, if you start out free, you can continue free as long as you find NthLib of use. In exchange, feedback would help me. Beyond feedback, if your students cook up app configurations they are proud of and that are appropriate for demo distribution, I am always looking for high quality content to distribute as examples of NthLib’s capabilities.
