Certainly! In a recent computer class, I introduced coding to my students using Scratch, a block-coding platform. I divided the class into groups, and each group was tasked with designing and coding their own interactive game. I guided them through each step of the coding process, from creating a "player sprite" to setting the boundaries for the game.
I also integrated robotics by using Lego Mindstorms kits. In one lesson, we built robots that could navigate through a maze using sensors. The students were responsible for writing programs that allowed their robots to recognize and respond to different obstacles in the maze. This project allowed my students to apply what they had learned in coding and engineering to create a functioning robot.
Overall, integrating coding and robotics into my computer lessons has been a successful way to engage my students and teach them technical skills that will serve them well in the future.
