Application of Computational Thinking in Art

Application of Computational Thinking in Art

Download my poster which includes example task ideas on how to apply computational thinking problem solving skills to Art. The poster includes a range of tasks and classroom ideas that use key computational thinking skills! Computational Thinking is a skill set that can be used across the curriculum, not just within computer science! The logical approach to solving a problem means that it’s application can be used to develop and improve students ability to deal with difficult problems in a more rational way. The aim of my posters is to make you realise that many of the brilliant tasks that teachers facilitate week in, week out actually include computational thinking. It’s just a matter of making it more explicit! Update: High Resolution 2560x1440 in both PNG & JPEG Please leave a review!!!

Custom Books

Custom Books

Custom Books is a resource created for a project with children who were in KS2-KS3. The resource may be useful for local history studies and as a stimulus for children to create their own chap book about a topic of their choosing. The project was awarded National Lottery funding, through the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and as part of our agreement we said we would create and share this resource. Context Children became researchers, finding out about the history of The Customs House and chap books. Chap Books were an early type of book made from a folded piece of paper. We were helped by The Word (National Centre for the Written Word) in South Shields and the National Libraries of Scotland. The young people used their research to create their own book, working with a heritage-arts educator, sharing their history of The Customs House with our community. Content The resource includes: Our research into chap books using The Word; National Centre for the Written Word local history collection in South Shields and information from The National Library of Scotland. Pages from our chap book about the history of The Customs House in South Shields and it’s impact on the town. Further Research • www.customshouse.co.uk/learning-participation/ • https://theworduk.org • https://www.nls.uk/ Written by Elizabeth Kane Learning Officer on behalf of The Customs House (2018) If you wish to offer any feedback please email Elizabeth@customshouse.co.uk With thanks to Catrin Galt from The Word and Dr Anette Hagan from NLS.
