AF & Year 5

 

Back in 2009 when the AF launched, CIS didn’t have a single Apple device, and a major focus of the AF was to provide the hardware and staff training to enable tech-infused learning. In recent years, the AF’s support of tech has been more about ongoing teacher training and the trialling of software and devices, such as Bee-Bots and Makey Makey kits, which allow even our very youngest students learn to code.
 
Our Y5 students highlight two multi-disciplinary coding-related projects from Year 4:
 
  • One where they animated a scene from a fairy tale using MIT’s “Scratch” software.
     
  • And another where they used iPads to program “Sphero” balls to “paint” works of art inspired by Jackson Pollack and Wu Guanzhong.
