Glamorgan School – DT/HM ToD

I had a great day on Friday working with the team from Glamorgan School at the start of a new DT/HM PLD contract. We spent the day unpacking the Revised Digital Technologies curriculum document and working through lots of “unplugged” computational thinking problems. The end of the day was spent working with Makey Makey’s, which for many was their first opportunity to have a go with them. We made a “cardboard band” using Scratch, copper tape, cardboard and ofcourse Makey Makeys. I think the team really appreciated how simple, yet how powerful the computational thinking can be with the addition of a few well chosen challenges, pitched well and resources with a range of simple and cheap peripherals.
