Let's Dance OFF

Today we will put our robots on show. Each group will make their robot Dance and tape the performance. Peers will review  the performance. You can then edit your video and place it onto your blog. You then need to evaluate the process and record your  discussion on your blog. This part will be done individually. This will be due by end of the week. All parts of the project i.e. PM sheets, testing logs and evaluations should be completed by end of the week.

Rubric for Assesment

Thanks for your feedback on the rubric it was very informative and I have tried to make some of the descriptors a little clearer. Click here to see a copy of the rubric.

Today you need to start programming your robot and recording any testing you do.

Snapshot- How computers can be part of discussion about Time Travel

Interested in Time Travel. Interesting article in Cosmos about how computers can contribute to the understanding of this idea.

Monday October 6 2016

Today we will continue working on the Let's Dance project. You need to make sure you have emailed me the link for your Table which is the first step in planning your Dance Sequence. You also need to choose a digital tool that allows you to create a flowchart(s) that gives me an idea of how you are going to execute the code. You need to tell me which sensors your are using, what behaviours your robot will do and name any functions such as loops or switches you may use. You also need to invite me to this so I can have a copy of your flowchart.

You can then begin to code your robot. Next week you will have 2 lessons to code.

Remember to also fill in the PM table that identifies the task you have completed and what there is still left to do.

For templates for the table and examples of the flowchart tool see Let's Dance project.

Any questions please use the comment on this post to ask any questions.


Complete table and PM tool. Work on flowchart....and....check the rubric. Please annotate and make suggestions if you do not understand how I am marking you. I will fix this up.

Let's Dance Comp Monday October 3 2017

Today we are beginning our Let's Dance Competition. You will have 4 lessons (including today) to work on this. The blog will work you through what you need to do. Click here to go to blog. Read over what you need to do.

Question: How do you think I should assess your work. Click here to add your feedback.

Today you need to complete all the planning tasks. This includes choosing the piece of music (60 seconds) all robots will Dance to, filling out the TABLE that breaks the Dance down and beginning the  Flowchart that incorporates the moves your robot will make and identifies sensors you will use and actions the robot will make. Can you use the correct flowchart tools.
