Digital Animation & Programming – Year 9 (Half Year), 9DAPa

This course takes a technological approach to the design process and applies it to two projects. In the first project you will design and create plasticine “claymation” models which will then be used to make a stop-motion movie that you will compose, edit and share with your audience. In the second project you are given the opportunity to design, plan, create and evaluate a Edison based robot that will be programmed to carry out a chosen task. The programming will be done using icon based Edware programming software.
There will also be learning based on the new Digital Technologies curriculum strands – computational thinking and designing and developing digital outcomes.

Assessment: You will be assessed on your technology practice and modelling including: design skills, problem solving, teamwork and skills in computer processes in a range of projects

Voluntary contribution: $25 for materials

Note: This course leads to Year 10 Digital Technologies.
