  3. 3. Tinker and Discover Together... Coding for Kids & Teachers By Joanne Villis 2 minute review of my previous presentation: 1. My teaching is based on the Maker Movement, let’s get kids tinkering (playing, hands-on). 2. My teaching is based on the Australian Technologies Curriculum. 3. My teaching is based on the assumption that kids may know more than us and learn quicker than we do. 4. It’s OK to make mistakes or admit you don’t know the answer. 5. This session’s focus is CODING!
  4. 4. Tinker and Discover Together... Coding for Kids & Teachers By Joanne Villis What are kids doing? They are using coding to make apps. Watch Thomas Suzeras’s Ted talk and what he has achieved. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fkd9TWUtFm0

  8. 8. Tinker and Discover Together... Coding for Kids & Teachers By Joanne Villis Exploration Table 1: Makey Makey If you asked student to complete task 1 you might like to use the questions below for them to reflect on their discovery. Remembering: Draw a diagram to explain how Makey Makey works. Understanding: What will cause the Makey Makey to not work? How many causes can you think of? Applying: What other objects do you think will work with Makey Makey? What other programs do you think might work? Creating: How might you set up the Makey Makey to test your ideas?
