magic logo lesson

Topic

On Logo Up

Class

Year 7

Prior learning/place of lesson in scheme of work

Learn how to plot image on logo up, input→on logo up to run code when the micro:bit screen is facing up and vertically orientated. We will be learning how to plot an image with the input logo up, basic plot image, and input logo down.

Progression Pathways / Computational Thinking Framework

Algorithms

  • Uses diagrams to express solutions.(AB)
  • Uses logical reasoning to predict outputs, showing an awareness of inputs (AL)
  • Represents solutions using a structured notation (AL) (AB)
  • Can identify similarities and differences in situations and can use these to solve problems (pattern recognition)(GE)

Programming & Development

  • Creates programs that implement algorithms to achieve given goals (AL)

Hardware & Processing

  • Knows that computers collect data from various input devices, including sensors and application software (AB)

Communication Networks

  • Demonstrates responsible use of technologies and online services, and knows a range of ways to report concerns Understands how search engines rank search results (AL)

Information Technology

  • Collects, organizes, and presents data and information in digital content (AB)
  • Makes appropriate improvements to solutions based on feedback received, and can comment on the success of the solution (EV)
  • Recognises the audience when designing and creating digital content (EV)
  • Recognises ethical issues surrounding the application of information technology beyond school.
Computational Thinking Concept: AB = Abstraction; DE = Decomposition; AL = Algorithmic Thinking; EV = Evaluation; GE = Generalisation
