Programming

This week we used the Mbots, Scratch  and Ollie to do some programming. We know how to program some basic movements like forward, back, left and right. We even did some debugging.

Below is an example of a simple game. (It's not perfect but it's a good start).

New-ish Google Sites



Here's an example from Google

Here is the Totara Learning site.


This video is a simple tutorial which will help you get started.



UPDATE:
30 Students and teachers came along and they all successfully made their websites. Not a bad way to spend a wet lunchtime. What an easy and practical tool for us to all have available.

Here are a few pics.

Hard at it, making websites. 
We did talk, just not during this photo. 

This website came through my twitter account so I thought I'd share it here.
