From Bee-Bots to computer coding!
This week the children have extended their learning in coding skills from a four-button interface on a toy robot to a real coding program on a computer!
The children have used the simple coding program “FMS-Logo”. They have learnt how to input directions into the program, using the specific coding language, to direct a marker on the screen. They were able to make their own pictures and patterns. They were keen to experiment on the new material and say what they could create with it.
After the session, we discussed where these technologies can be applied in real life (eg. traffic lights) and how useful this kind of technology can be in our everyday life.
If you are using any devices of this sort, the children can explain to you their simple functions. Just ask them!
