Stage 4 Computational Thinking Activities for the Creative Arts

In Stage 4, students are encouraged to become more sophisticated in their use of computational thinking skills in all learning areas. They can create online stories and games, programs and models. Students can use electronics and robotic technology to create mechanisms and develop mini-computers. They learn how to best use everyday sites such as Google Maps and spreadsheets. Students learn about online safety.

Students could:

  • learn how a programming language draws, using websites such as Khan Academy
  • create experimental artworks by using paint with robots such as Bristlebots
  • design a light (Visual Arts) or sound (Music) show for a school creative arts festival using programmable mini-computers and electronic components such as littleBits – see Resources
  • design a wearable that draws attention to a social issue
  • create sculptures or reliefs using design software and 3D printer technology
  • discuss how technology has changed art over time, using websites such as or Tech As Art to research the discussion
  • create the soundtrack for a video trailer using software such as GarageBand or Audacity.
