Middle to Senior students will learn how to code and program through the use of robotics through Lego technics using Lego We-Do, Lego Mindstorm, Spheros & Ozobots. Digital Portfolios will showcase student work throughout the year and will develop student knowledge in a variety of software programs such as Publisher & Powerpoint. Kahootz & Comic Life will also be used as well as editing/recording to allow student creativity, innovation & collaboration with their peers.
Grade 1/2s will continue to build on their skills using a desktop computer and its keyboard functions. Students will be introduced to programs such as MS Word & Publisher to create documents that include inserting borders, images from Google and our school server, style and backgrounds to enhance their work in a creative way. We will also be working with Lego-WeDo.2 where children will investigate the mechanics and design of a model. Students will be able to build a range of working models that they can programme, move and operate through coding.
Foundation will continue to be introduced to software programs that will support and develop literacy & numeracy using BroadLearn, PAINT & KidPix 4 as well as working with basic coding and robotics through BeeBots.
