Thinking Smarter 2014
Throughout 2014 the students (both Years 3-5 and Years 6-8) will be participating in a computer based programme that integrates, literacy, numeracy, creative thinking and problem solving skills. This programme will help students develop advanced computer skills, architectural skills and strategy design skills. Some of the programmes planned for 2014 are:
3D Modelling & Architecture
Students will discover how to invent their very own unique dream home, interior and exterior, using the coolest 3D software including Sweet Home 3D and Google Sketch Up.
Children will plan, build and develop an automated production system through Tekkit.
Students will create their very own website from scratch.
Introduction to Coding
During this course students will be exposed to the programming, scripting, and designing of apps using 3D development programming tools.
Sharing our Work
For those of us who wish to share our creations with the world we will place our work on this page. Scroll down to see some of our recent work.
Otherwise if you are a parent, we place all our work on Edmodo.
Edmodo provides a safe and easy way for us to connect and collaborate with each other, share content with our peers and access resources used in class. It also provides a place to store our work to share with our parents at home. We all have our own page and our own passwords. Click on the edmodo icon to go to this website.
Our Recent Work
We used a website called Primary Wall to jot down our most imaginative ideas of a dream home.
We then used Bubbl.Us to brainstorm specifically what we thought our family's dream home would look like.
