We are excited to announce that we now have a 3D printer in the Technology Lab, thanks to a grant from the national organization Mouse and Makerbot Industries! We will be using resources from Tinkercad.org, Google Sketch Up, and Starfall! Stay tuned for our creations!
The computer KEYBOARD is a tool that helps us to communicate with words. Do you know how to type correctly? Click on the picture below to play the Dance Mat Typing game.
For the next few months we will be learning about all the machines we use in our everyday lives!
Here are some of the activities we will be doing:
The Hour of Code in Ms. Erna’s Technology Lab was a success! Together, we wrote 167 lines of code! We will continue to learn about computer science, coding and the importance of following directions in every day activities.
We chased after mean piggies on the Smartboard, but we also explored simple coding apps such as Cargo Bot, Light Bot, and Daisy Dinosaur. We can’t wait to learn more!
We are so excited to be part of Computer Science Education Week‘s Hour of Code. Check out the activities we will be doing this week on our iPads, computers and Smartboards:
