Task 3- Lesson 3 by Mind Map: Task 3- Lesson 3

1. Introduction: Reintroducing concepts-.

1.1. Bee-bots, programming, sequencing and directional terminology

1.2. Activities: -Video demonstrating a type of robot required for sustainability. --Bee-Bot 3x4 grid to show coordinates and demonstrate sequencing. Students will provide verbal feedback to clarify coordinates on map

1.3. Focus Questions: What is a robot? What do robots do? What is sustainability? What is a grid? What are grid coordinates? What is some commonly used directional terminology? What does it mean to programme a robot? (Tell it what to do) What is a sequence?

1.3.1. Materials: View screen (Interactive whiteboard) Bee-Bots (1 between 4 students) Bee-Bot Maps BB-88 robotic droid Grid Space (3x3)

2. Body: Computational thinking in groups (Bee-bot maps)

2.1. Activities: Place students in groups of 4, provide with a 15-step algorithm sequence sheet and 'Bee'Bot Map'. Students will work together to figure out a variety of sequences which they can programme into the Bee-bot to make it move over the roads.

2.2. Materials: Grid paper Bee-bot maps (See Below for links to map) Bee Bot Road and Buildings Mat 15-Step Algorithm Sequence Sheet

3. Conclusion: Clarify and reinforce understanding

3.1. Reinforce Focus Questions: What is a robot? What do robots do? What is sustainability? What is a grid? What are grid coordinates? What is some commonly used directional terminology? What does it mean to programme a robot? (Tell it what to do) What is a sequence?

3.2. Present some of the student’s sequences (ones that worked well). Reinforce focus questions and make sure all student sheets related to sequencing and today’s lesson have been collected. Make sure to demonstrate to students the necessity of putting Bee-bots in the recharge station for future usage. Dismiss students.

4. Extension: Creation of own map (Group/individual that the Bee-Bot can traverse. Again encourage the use of a 15-step algorithm sequence

5. Cross Curricular Priority- Sustainability (In the future machinery required for agriculture such as the Merlin Robot Milker, various harvesters etc. Will require consistent programming and maintenance). Fullwood M2erlin – robotic milking machine in action

6. Key Concepts:

6.1. specification (descriptions and techniques), algorithms (following and describing) and implementation (translating and programming)

6.2. Interactions (people and digital systems, data and processes) and impacts (sustainability and empowerment).

7. Digital Technologies Content Strand

7.1. Processes and production skills- programming a robot (Bee-bot) with an algorithm to solve a problem-Creating Solutions

7.1.1. Investiagation, implementaton, evaluation, collaboration and management

8. Overall-engage confidently with and responsibly select and manipulate appropriate technologies, materials, data, systems, components, tools and equipment when designing and creating solutions:

9. Digital Technologies:

9.1. -use computational thinking and the key concepts of abstraction; data collection, representation and interpretation; specification, algorithms and implementation to create digital solutions

10. General Capabilities:

10.1. ICT Capability

10.2. Critical and Creative Thinking

11. Student Diversity:

11.1. Lessons and program have learning adjustments designed to cater for students with disabilities (Language/communicative) by incorporating visual prompts and group work with students. Allowing these students to work closely and visually observe what students are doing without necessarily understanding verbal commands
