Daniela Lazzaro▸ Task 7: Visual Programming

We started with the spheros today. What great fun we had! We started with simply driving the spheros with our fingers but within the hour we were using simple block codes to move our sphero, change colour, make them speak etc. The children were very excited. So many mathematical concepts were being discussed between each pair, "What happens if we move it 180 degrees? 90? 270? What angle can we use to move it left…." Having a big open space helped. We talked about using obstacles next week and being able to code our spheros to move around them. Can't wait!
