This programming project is from Andrea Arpaci-Dusseau's CS202 "Introduction to Computation" course at UW-Madison. The project description includes: an overview for the project, which involves creating an animated music video or poem a set of inspiring example projects suggestions for good documentation practices and evaluation outline.

This outline goes through the steps of making a simple animation where two sprites interact in a setting.  I have used this project to introduce Scratch to children and adults.  For adults, it takes about an hour, for students (depending on age) it can take two to three class periods.

Ever heard of an Exquisite Corpse? It's not what you might think. An Exquisite Corpse is an old game in which people write a phrase on a sheet of paper, fold it over to conceal part of it and pass it on to the next player to do the same. The game ends when someone finishes the story, which is then read aloud.

In this activity, participants create interactive collages using images and sounds based on a topic or theme. In addition to making one project in front of the group (Mitch made a project about man on the moon), I also passed out the attached handout. Updated on Thursday, March 24: Next iteration of this handout provides a bit more step-by-step.

This project was the culminating activity for our ELA studies around the novel Bud Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis. The objective was for students to use the programming language Scratch to demonstrate their recognition of sequencing, setting, and the theme, When one door closes, another opens. Students worked individually and each chose a different chapter from the book. Each project included step-by-step moves matching the sequence of the story, elements of the setting, and the characters from the assigned chapter. In addition, programming, logical thinking, problem solving and presentation skills were developed.

Children can study different phenomenon by designing their own instruments, putting together an experiment and collecting data. The goals of the activity are: Teach the children about sensors and its applicability in their everyday life. Familiarize the children with scientific investigations when they formulate, experiment and think about their topics of interest. Teach the children to use computational tools to help them in their scientific investigations. Motivate children to build their own tools for the manipulation and representation of the data.

Creative writing with Scratch can take the form of encouraging your students to collaborate on creating a Read-Aloud Scratch book. The idea is to produce a book for preschoolers. The sentences shoudl be short and simple and the story line is left to the students' collective imagination.

Her year-long doctoral research project on Arcade Our Way (AoW) included inter-generational participants: 15 Grade 7 students from The Linden School, Beth Alexander, their teacher, as well as five undergraduate students from Concordia and McGill University, and the CEO of a small gaming company in Montréal.

Computer technology continues to change and influence our culture in many different ways. This paper poses some of the many questions that arise relating to faith and computer technology and explores how faith informs our view of computer technology. The Biblical themes of creation, fall, redemption, and shalom provide a framework for forming a Christian view of computer technology.

Several decades ago I began my career as a freshly-minted engineering graduate, eager and confident in my technical abilities. I took a job at a small high-tech company in Waterloo. I recall the satisfaction of seeing my first designs transformed into real products that powered various real-world applications. However, as I sat at my desk, I distinctly recall beginning to wonder what my faith had to do with my technical work. This was something they didn’t teach at engineering school.
