D&T - Programming with Crumble

(0)
This 6-week unit of work enables your learners to design, develop, test and programme computer-controlled electronic systems for a superhero vehicle alarm. While these lessons in this complete series are designed for you to use with your school’s Crumble and free Crumble programming software (google - ‘Crumble programming’ it is very similar to Scratch), all activities can be adapted to work with whatever physical computing resources you have. The following national curriculum objectives are covered over the 6 weeks: Design use research and develop design criteria to inform the design of innovative, functional, appealing products that are fit for purpose, aimed at particular individuals or groups generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through discussion, annotated sketches, cross-sectional and exploded diagrams, prototypes, pattern pieces and computer-aided design Make select from and use a wider range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks [for example, cutting, shaping, joining and finishing], accurately select from and use a wider range of materials and components, including construction materials, according to their functional properties and aesthetic qualities Evaluate investigate and analyse a range of existing products evaluate their ideas and products against their own design criteria and consider the views of others to improve their work Technical knowledge understand and use electrical systems in their products [for example, series circuits incorporating switches, bulbs, buzzers] apply their understanding of computing to program, monitor and control their products. All resources are listed here and are referenced in the lesson plans. A great unit that is easy to understand and teach to your class. This unit has been intentionally planned to mainly cover the last national curriculum objective apply their understanding of computing to program, monitor and control their products as I struggled to find a unit of work that could help teach teachers before they then delivered this to children. Crumble micro-controllers have been used due to their affordability and ease of use with the teaching and learning of this unit of work. They are avalible at: https://redfernelectronics.co.uk/shop/ (You only need the starter kit for this planning)
