Programming…

I’m ending the year with programming.  I know it’s not a long time, 8 days to be exact, but it’s enough to give my students exposure to programming and the processes involved.  Their first activity is to program the game of Pong, because it was the gateway to the video game era.  They do pretty well with this activity and I love seeing my students switch into a different gear in thinking.  There is so much logic and problem solving involved with programming I really believe it impacts my students in a positive way.

Here’s one student’s game so far….
