Briefly talk about the use of images and copyright. Remind them they need to have permission to use any images they find on the internet. Show the short video about creative commons.
Explain the difference between vectors and bitmaps. Hyperlink on image above to http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/dida/graphics/bitmapvectorrev3.shtml – simple grid which compare bitmap and vector graphicsBitmap or vector graphic?When deciding whether an image should be a bitmap or vector graphic, you should ask yourself the following questions:Does the image need to be resized?Does the image need to be drawn to scale?Do you need the image to look real?Do you have any restrictions on the file size?
Share Pippa’s example projects with those who need something to get them started.

- Devote 2/3s of session to graphics workshop (with 20 mins for confirming Academic action plan)
This is a live document to help you improve your academic performance. In the future you will need to update this each time you get feedback from an assignment.
We will explore these in the whole cohort session
Session 8 Computing part 4
VECTOR GRAPHICS AND SOUND
LNG TASK (REMINDER)
We asked you to…
1. View the games produced by the other members of your LNG
(use the Scratch Profiles doc on the EP404 blog to help you
2. Leave feedback for all of the members of your LNG.
3. What can you learn from the games that your LNG have
produced? Use the ‘See Inside’ feature so you can learn from
WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNT?
Have a look at these projects and see how the
vector graphics have been used to create a
more professional finish to the sprites and
1. Explore the features of the paint editor
2. Have a look at the online ‘help’ tutorials
3. Focus on the use of vectors
4. Create a detailed sprite using vector graphics
5. Copy and modify to create a series of costumes (think about a
simple action (moving, eating, talking etc)
6. Add sound to your graphics.
ACADEMIC ACTION PLAN
Working in pairs:
Identify what you have done well or feel confident about
Discuss your targets and actions (2 - 3)
Make notes in readiness for completing the plan
We will be assessing your ability to …
develop autonomy in and take responsibility for their own learning
including reflecting upon strengths and areas for development;
The academic plan will be marked on a PASS/FAIL basis

Ensure that it is finished before midday on Friday 6th of December
Discuss your understanding of these and how you might
demonstrate these through your Scratch project
