Problem Solving, Algorithms and Unexpected Outcomes                                                    In week three students were asked to develop a procedure or algorithm for sorting 4-8 cards efficiently with the cards ordered from smallest to largest. The goal was to “collaboratively develop and iteratively improve an algorithm for… (Show more)

    By: Jessica Weber   So what does computational thinking have to do with 3D printing anyways? Turns out a lot! In this post, I hope to shed some light on how computational practices are evident in student learning while engaged in the 3D design process.   Computational Practices Defined:  Brennan and Resnick (2012) outline key dimensions of… (Show more)

  The types of coding and computational thinking (CT) activities that we find to be most valuable are the ones that incorporate a wide variety of concepts and skills.   In this activity, students can program a financial literacy game in Scratch that may also be combined with the Makey Makey.  The program will ask the “player” to indicate the…

Welcome back!   A new school year is upon us and we’re excited to continue to share some of the great things going on in the province surrounding coding and computational thinking (CT).   More and more attention is being given to coding and CT, both in Canada and the world. Our goal is to support educators as they change their practice to allow… (Show more)
