I am super excited by the project the Year 4 students will be working on in their Digital and Design Technologies lessons. For the first part of this term, students will be designing an interactive board game that works with Ozobots.
Students will create questions with multiple outcomes that the player can select and place an Ozobot on the line to see if they are correct. Our initial lesson was an exploration of examples to see how this might work using Ozobot Colour Codes. This was then followed by a chance for the students to work with a buddy and see if they could create an example themselves.
Students used directional prompts, line jumps and u-turns to navigate their robots to the correct response and had a blast doing it. I even roped the Year 4 teachers into having a go at it themselves!
Following on from today, students will work in teams to design a game from the ground up. They will have to plan questions, responses and the game board design to compliment their theme. I am hoping to celebrate their learning by inviting parents in for an afternoon to play their games with them. Fingers crossed!
