Don't Save your passwords!

Having Google save your password is a HORRIBLE idea! You don't want the next person that uses the Computer or Chromebook to have access to your accounts. If they delete your work, it could be lost forever. If they send out an unwanted email, you will be responsible. If they do an inappropriate search you could lose your computer privileges!

Computers and Technology

During the Computers and Technology "trimester", students will be exposed to a wide range of skills. These skills will help them become lifelong learners in our technology driven society. In addition to becoming more efficient in keyboarding, the students will explore a number of programs while developing projects to be used across the curriculum.  In addition to projects students will be given a foundation for Internet Safety and Digital Citizenship.













Once you have created you account below, you can click on the cat above to access the Scratch website. 





Days 1 and 2: 

  1. Register you account using your teachers name above. (Video 01 to the left)
    1. Username should be the same a school username.
    2. Password should be the same as your Google password. 
  2. Create a Sprite and make it move. (Video O2 to the left)
  3. Create a very simple maze background (Video 03 to the left)


Days 3 and 4:

  1. Continue to work to program your sprite to move in four directions. 
  2. Create 4 Simple Backgrounds (Video 03 to the left)
    1. Maze 1 (Easy)
    2. Maze 2 (Bit tougher)
    3. You Win 
    4. You Lose
  3. Program your sprite to start the level over if you bump the Maze. (Video 04 to the left)

Day 5:


  1. Program your sprite to start over if it bumps the Maze. (Video 04 to the left)
  2. Program your background to change if you bump the "finish block" (Same idea as video 4)
  3. Create a variable for bumps. If you get too many bumps you lose. (Video 05 to the left)

If your game works and you can win or lose, try to add the following. (It is a really good idea to "Save a Copy" at this point. Just in case you mess up on some of your code. 

  1. Add sound effects to your sprites. 
    • Buzz if you bump the maze.
    • A bell if you complete a level. 
    • Music in the background. 
  2. Add a timer to encourage the players to move faster. Video to add a timer. 
  3. Add a fastest time record. Video to add fastest time. 
  • Next week you can use your time and use one of the tutorial on the left of the page to design a game. Your game doesn't need to be exactly like the tutorial, you will use it as a guide.
  • If you want to design a different game, please explain to me the object of your game first.
