Using the online program Tynker, you will work through lessons learning coding concepts in a game-like way. To complete each lesson, you will do a review, solve a puzzle, run through a tutorial, build your own project, and take a quiz. You will create interactive stories, animations, and mini-games. 

Learning Intentions
I am learning to…

  • Write code. [Give instructions to a computer to tell it what to do.]
  • Follow and create a sequence of steps.

Success Criteria
I will be successful when I…

  • Use and arrange different code instructions.
  • Troubleshoot and debug my programs.

To learn this I will…

  • Use the Tynker program, Course: Programming 101 to:
    • design animated characters
    • create interactive scenes
    • make animated birthday cards
    • write cartoon stories
    • create a music machine
    • experiment with maths art
    • design and build small games
