Bett 2014 - A is for Algorithm (Claire Lotriet)

  1. 1. Claire Lotriet A is for Algorithm: first steps in primary computing
  2. 2. Unfamiliar terms ICT vs Computing
  3. 3. The brief Six mini projects mapped to the new computing programme of study
  4. 4. Algorithms What pupils in key stage 1 now need to be taught understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions
  5. 5. An algorithm is a set of instructions designed to solve a problem or perform a specific task. Computer programs use algorithms to carry out different functions.
  6. 6. Unit 2: We are cooking Producing an interactive recipe book
  7. 7. Getting practical Phil Bagge’s ‘sandwich bot’
  8. 8. Getting practical Coding with Year 6
  9. 9. Getting practical Coding with Year 6
  10. 10. Unit 6: We are game designers Creating and advertising a computer game
  11. 11. Bring this world out of the computer
  12. 12. What’s been done? Using resources that are already out there
  13. 13. ICT vs Computing Do we have to start from scratch?
  14. 14. How does our current curriculum fit in? use technology purposefully to create, organise, store, manipulate and retrieve digital content select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information
  15. 15. Spreadsheet s and graphs Filming Film editing Blogging Creating a range of digital content Photo editing Podcasting Animation ebooks
  16. 16. What have I learned so far? The key points •Unpick new terminology and relate it to what you already know •Step away from the computer if you need to - find practical ways to teach new concepts •Use resources that are already available to help you – there are useful guides, videos etc just an internet search away •Build on the great ICT you are already doing – you don’t need to start from scratch
  17. 17. Thank you for listening 19
