Today, as I listened to the second Office Hours session, I continued to explore work by other Scratchers as part of the Creative Computing Online Workshop and attempted my first “Debug-It” project…
I have reflected on the work I have done for this “Debug-It” project according to the “triplet” for reviewing work:
- I like debugging! I was actually quite surprised at how much I enjoyed this Debug-It activity! I found that, after viewing the instructions and the original blocks, I had a picture in my mind of what I needed to do. However, the rearrangement of the blocks didn’t work at all. I was totally wrong! I really enjoyed tinkering with different block configurations until I came up with my final result. I had a real sense of satisfaction knowing that I had solved the issues. I was particularly happy with the way the “Meow” speech bubbles worked with the “.5” timings.
- I wish I could complete more Debug-It activities in the future.
- What if I gave some Debug-It activities to our students? Completing these types of activities can help you to learn a great deal about your students. How do they cope with trouble shooting activities? What is their reaction when they hit a “dead end”? Do they like to work with others to find a solution or do they prefer to work alone?
