  17. 17. Confidential & Proprietary So where do we begin?
  18. 18. Confidential & Proprietary CS Unplugged! Computer Science without a computer…. WHAT!!!
  19. 19. Confidential & Proprietary Starting Unplugged Stacking Cups ● concrete → pictorial → abstract ● Foundations for computational thinking ● Introduces key vocabulary (algorithm, coding, debugging, function, parameters) ● Build context/schema Unplugged Activities bit.ly/crazeycode
  20. 20. Confidential & ProprietaryConfidential & Proprietary Main Goal Highlight programming techniques and illustrate the need for functions.
  21. 21. Confidential & ProprietaryConfidential & Proprietary Overview Using a predefined “Robot Vocabulary” your students will figure out how to guide one another to accomplish specific tasks without discussing them first. This segment teaches students the connection between symbols and actions, as well as the valuable skill of debugging.
  22. 22. Confidential & ProprietaryConfidential & Proprietary Objectives Student will • Learn to convert real-world activities into instructions • Gain practice coding instructions with symbols • Gain understanding of the need for precision in coding • Gain practice debugging malfunctioning code • Understand the usefulness of functions and parameters (grades 7+)
  23. 23. Confidential & Proprietary Get into Groups of 3 Student A = Navigator Student B = Driver Student C = Robot A tells the driver what code to write. B makes suggestions, physically “writes” the code. When ready, B reads the code aloud. C completes the directions. ABC debug the code if needed. Rotate roles.
