Prep Work for Students
You can ask students to fiill in this form, if you think this helps you register their work. In this lesson, the answers to the form can also be the source for a word cloud (see class meeting guide below).
1 - Watch the video on digital prototyping. Fill out the form with an answer to the question: what have you learned and can share with your peers? (±40 words)
2 - Building upon feedback from the last lesson, think about which features your project needs and list the three most important ones.
Keep logging your work on your physical or online journal.
|Part (est. time)||Content|
|Intro (5 min)||
Intro video from past cohorts (coming soon).
Overview of previous meeting.
Agenda and expectations for this meeting.
|Warm Up (10 min)||Send students the link to choose-your-own-adventure "story". Its purpose
is to encourage students to reflect upon possible problem solving
strategies, a foundational computational skill and one that will be
important for them in personal and professional life.
Give students about 7 minutes to play and a couple more minutes to reflect and discuss what they experienced.
|Peer Learning (20 min)||Share with students the list of learnings that they shared in the first
question to the prep work form. Explain to them that this knowledge is
part of the group's "collective intelligence" and that they can be
explored by all of the students.
In case one of them needs to implement a feature that demands one of these learnings, they can seek help within the group. Give some time for students to share some of the techniques that they learned.
|Hnads-On (40 min)||Students can choose if they want to improve their Google Slides prototype or if they want to go ahead and try App Inventor (or any other tool that they happen to know). At any time, they can ask for help from their peers or instructor.|
|Presentation and Testing in Pairs (20 min)||In pairs, students present their projects and collect feedback.|
|Reflection (10 min)||Individually, students reflect on their testing and think of the direcction they want to pursue. The ones who want to share their reflection are welcome to do so.|
|Next Steps (5 min)||Instructor presents an overview for the next meeting.|
