Technology at SCDSB Summer School


July 28, 2015 - As most parents know children today canít seem to go without their technology. Whether itís playing on a gaming system or using a tablet. The Sudbury Catholic District School Board is using that interest in their summer program. Students were introduced to Dash and Dot as a new learning friend. Software is becoming a critical layer of all our lives. It is the language of our world. In the future, not knowing the language of computers will be as challenging as being illiterate or innumerate are today. Using these robots students are able to drag-and-drop programming language that snaps together like puzzle pieces. We start by sending simple commands and progress to creating more complex algorithms. The picture below shows Alexandra Gratton learning the first steps in using Dash.
