Investigating Digital Technologies

Leave a comment

This year the year 3-6 students spend at Dwellingup spend Friday afternoon together spending part of the time investigating digital technologies and part of the time doing sport. Over the past three weeks we have been investigating some visual coding through apps such as Beebot, Scratch Jr, Kodable, Lightbot and Tynker. The students have been very engaged, some working individually, some collaboratively. There has been evidence of problem solving, creative thinking, perseverance and peer tutoring.

This week we also looked at Sphero and Osmo, (we were very excited to hear about Osmo coding being released). I was lucky enough to be part of the Leading Digital Technologies Conference a few weeks ago and can’t wait for our package of digital technolgy tools to arrive.
