We will learn a few basics of computer programming by creating an interactive e-card with Music Blocks visual programming language. Students will be given a template program to start with, and asked to add their own elements (images, music, ideas). Students will leave class with their own interactive e-card. As Music Blocks is a highly open-ended tool and a full-featured programming language, we will not get into all the details of how everything in the template works. That being said, the...
Students will create an interactive e-card. Students will explore 1. order, 2. multimedia, 3. logic, 4. computational thinking, and 5. basic music ideas
Devin Ulibarri is a professional musician and one of the co-creators of Music Blocks. Who better to teach your kids how to use Music Blocks and create a seasonal/holiday e-card?
If students are unable to complete the e-card assignment in the 90 minutes given, they may do so at home. (Using Music Blocks requires no license fee.) Interested students are encouraged to apply for a competition (but this is not required; just a motivation for interested students.)
A laptop/desktop computer is required (no tablets or phones), and Chrome browser is highly recommended. A second best is Firefox and newer versions of Microsoft Edge. Music Blocks does not work on Internet Explorer.
At the end of class, each learner will share their work. The teacher will give feedback, as well as other students. No letter grade will be given. We usually find students are motivated to create something they are proud of, and thus do not give formal assessments.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
