Learn to program, project style

Problem Based Learning (PBL) is all the rage at the moment. I thought I’d try my hand at leading my 10 ICT class through a problem based scenario. This is the result.

We came up with the idea of a FlySwat type game (mine uses iPads, just because…), as it teaches a huge swathe of programming basics, from using text in labels, all the way through to (eventually) reading and writing to text files for the High Score.

We’re partly through the problem (currently used timers, variables  and added sound effects), and I’ve gone back and made videos based on where our discussions went.

So, if you’re interested in programming, and want to see how our class has journeyed, have a look at this post:  Problem Based Learning: iSquish – learning to program
