Stage 4 Computational Thinking Activities for PDHPE

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:

  • design a training schedule, then create an exercise music mix for it – use a website or app such as MyFitnessPal and search the iTunes site for tips on how to create a playlist
  • use a spreadsheet to collect student data, then analyse the data using graphs
  • create a cookbook of healthy recipes, using iBooks Author or Book Creator
  • use health apps to track student data over time
  • use video analytics, such as the Hudl Technique, to give feedback to each other on practical skills
  • create an interactive map using Google Maps to teach primary school students coming into high school about the school community; students can supplement map positions with videos explaining elements of the school community (eg a video in which students explain the elements of the school crest could be embedded into the map at the point where the school crest appears in the school buildings) – sites such as MulinBlog outline techniques to use with Google Maps
  • create interactive tours of the school as part of their learning about local communities
  • learn how to protect themselves from cyberbullying and other online problems through sites such as the Federal Government’s eSafety site.
