Welcome to Technology Day!
This year, Miss Bishop will be running an exciting, cutting-edge technology day. For one day only, 30 lucky children will spend the day learning and developing a brand new set of essential skills using different pieces of the latest tec! By the end of the day, the children will have a clear understanding of all of the essentials when it comes to technology; from cutting and pasting to coding text for a website! They will leave the day as technology experts, ready to pass on their new knowledge to adults and children around them.
To begin our day, we discussed what basic skills we need to understand and use the technology around us. We agreed that we needed to know how to log in, search the internet, copy and paste, edit and save things.
Next in our journey of technology was understanding coding. We used Lightbot to explore aspects of coding, linking the key language we need to use to the apps stages.
Once we had a solid understanding of coding basics, it was time to create our Lego figures ready for coding later in the day.
Scratch and Lego
Our final task was to combine our Lego models with Scratch to create a code that would make our model work.
