Physical computing

  1. 1. PHYSICAL COMPUTING PLUS NETWORKS AND SEARCH ENGINES
  2. 2. LEGO WEDO & SCRATCH KS2: • design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems • work with […] various forms of input and output You will need: Scratch v1 and a LEGO WeDo kit What to do: 1. Open Scratch v1. Applications > Scratch > right-click and select “Open file location” 2. Work through the Getting Started guide and then try some of the Starter Projects
  3. 3. MAKEY MAKEY KS2: • work with […] various forms of input and output You will need: Makey Makey kit, some playdoh, iDaft website What to do: 1. Can you create a playdoh controller to play the iDaft samples? 2. Can you create a playdoh controller to play Tetris online? 3. Can you create a playdoh controller to play a Scratch game? 4. What other kinds of controllers can you make? Be creative with different materials
  4. 4. ROAMER & BEE-BOT APP KS1: create and debug simple programs use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs You will need: Roamer, (free) Bee-Bot app on iPod touch or iPad What to do: 1. Can you program Roamer to „draw‟ a square? Tip: you need to press the CM button twice before programming Roamer. 2. Can you program Roamer to „draw‟ a square using a repeat command? Tip: press „R‟ followed by the number of times you want your instructions to be repeated, then enclose your instructions in square brackets. 3. Can you program Roamer to „draw‟ an equilateral triangle?
  5. 5. ROAMER & BEE-BOT CONT… KS1: • create and debug simple programs • use logical reasoning to predict the behaviour of simple programs You will need: Roamer, (free) Bee-Bot app on iPod touch or iPad What to do: 4. How quickly can you complete the mazes in the Bee-Bot app? Try to beat the scores set by your friends 5. Go to the farm (see button in bottom-right corner). Can you heard the sheep? Can you collect all the eggs?
  6. 6. NETWORKS & SEARCH ENGINES KS2: • understand computer networks, including the internet; how they can provide multiple services, such as the World Wide Web, and the opportunities they offer for communication and collaboration • appreciate how [search] results are selected and ranked You will need: paper, pen and the World Wide Web What to do: 1. Draw the internet. 2. Now do some (careful) research about the internet and try drawing it again. 3. What is the World Wide Web and how is this different from the internet? 4. Do you know how search engines like Google select and rank search results? Do some research online to find out. Make notes about what you find out.
