           While looking through all the work I completed throughout the course, I was able to reflect upon how many new, useful things I learned throughout this course. I had such rewarding experiences learning about and tinkering with...

          Paul, I find it funny that you chose the week two assignment for mBots to be your best work, yet week two was my worst week throughout the whole mBot project. Also, I think that you raised a great point in saying that technology, if used properly...

            I believe that my best work from the course was the Week 2 assignment of using the Mbot Sensors. I think I did a great job using code to allow the mBot to sense its surroundings. I learned throughout the semester that technology can...

                Paul, I find it funny that you chose the week two assignment for mBots to be your best work, yet week two was my worst week throughout the whole mBot project. Also, I think that you raised a great point in saying that technology, if used properly can really have an impact on student learning. I currently student teach in New Rochelle and my mentor teacher is using project based learning on their Chromebooks in order for them to learn about different planets. It is so interesting to see the difference in interest students raise between regular lectures from the teachers and individual projects on their own using technology as a resource.

                Overall this experience was outside my comfort level because I wouldn't normally create a game as such. With that said, I enjoyed being placed outside of my comfort zone and exploring all that Twine had to offer. Twine was fun and easy to work...

                  As I gathered up what I consider to be my best work for this course, I was able to reflect upon what I learned, what I accomplished, and where my thinking is now about teaching computer science in schools.  I learned a lot more than I...

                    As a last assignment, I want you to do two things. First, gather up what you consider to be your best work for this course and then reflecting on what you learned, what you accomplished, and where your thinking is now about teaching computer science...

                      The next (and last) project for our course is called "Code is Beautiful." In this project, you will be doing some text based coding. You will be creating a "Create Your Own Adventure" digital story that would share with your...

                                This week, I really didnt know what to do! I tried coding the cha cha slide and then realized it might be more fun to code something that would chase my dog around if she got too close. Turns out, it worked but she didn't want to get very close...

                                    Hi Jeff. I enjoyed reading this post. When learning how to control the mBot (or anything new), it's important for students to understand that it takes time and patience. You said it took you a couple hours to figure this out. At first, I was...

                                      This is cool! I wanted to do the hokey pokey too but decided on another song! Nice work.

                                          Maria, you did a great job with this! I like how you included the LED lights into your dance. Your timing was perfect.
