In recent years, the importance of programming has become a subject of increasing international awareness, moving from the narrow domain of the “geek” to the broader world, including the K-12 education space. Earlier this year, President Obama endorsed mandatory computer programming education in schools. And recently, a viral video from code.org encouraged students to learn to code. It is especially clear that the ability to code is taking on an unprecedented level of importance.
Using a tablet application to do visual programming, the robot moves when you press the execute button. By fitting blocks together and programming visually, children can have fun and learn about programming in a relaxed setting. Our team offered the programming platform. In the creation of the programming we thought it is important to teach children about the fundamental “sequence/branch/repeat” functions. The goal is to teach children putting your thoughts in order and joy of creating.
Held 10 programming workshops for children in Shibuya. The children made the robots move to accomplish objectives that were given to them beforehand, and each individual child was taught the methods of visual programming by an instructor. The children who could not get the robots to move how the anticipated at the start were having great fun by the end. I was responsible for brand design.
