ULearn 2017 - Day 1: Future Focused Learning

Future focused learning - a design thinking workshop to prepare your school for the new digital technology curriculum

Presenter: Paula Hay (N4L), Zoe Timbrell (OMGTech), Kawana Wallace, Patrick Lalor, Vivian Chandra, Geoff Bentley, Wiremu Wallace

Learning Outcomes:

The Central ‘Why?’ - What is the ‘why’ of your school?

Computational thinking for digital Technologies:
Comp Thinking enables a student to express problems

3 main areas of focus for the new digital technology curriculum:
Computational Thinking

An Algorithm is the set of instructions created through logical thinking (a process or set of rules to be followed in calculations or other problem-solving operations, especially by a computer.)

Programme - when an algorithm goes into a computer (provide (a computer or other machine) with coded instructions for the automatic performance of a task)

Computational Thinking - the thought processes involved in formulating a problem and expressing its solution(s) in such a way that a computer—human or machine—can effectively carry out.

Students need to have a basic understanding of ‘binary’
(Binary describes a numbering scheme in which there are only two possible values for each digit: 0 and 1)

We were provided with a sheet with curriculum and progression levels - Year 0 to Year 8. Shows possible progressions and programmes to use.

Design Thinking Process:
Define - a problem well defined is a problem half solved
Ideate -
Prototype - try it out, what worked? What didn’t?
