Alan Cockerill▸ Task 7: Visual Programming


Option 2: Describe a classroom activity that incorporates a visual programming environment
Use the 'Hour of Code' activity 'Classic Maze' to introduce children to using a visual coding environment in a computer lab setting:
https://studio.code.org/hoc/1
Show children how to access the site and demonstrate the first few puzzles to children. Explain that the video clips will help them master harder puzzles as they progress through the lesson. Actively supervise and lend assistance as the children work independently through the lesson. Afterwards review some of the key concepts such as 'repetition' and 'loops'.Code.org – Classic Maze
