Mini-lecture - basics of programming
This video was created using Scratch. There are lots of other examples available for clocks. You can now try to create a digital or analog clock with dials or big digital numbers.
Create your own application with Scratch
Scratch is developed by the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in the US. In this tool you can create simple (but also complex) applications. With a drag and drop interface, you can create applications without the need for programming language knowledge. All Object oriented (OO) concepts are available in the tool, but made easy for the user. Also connections to hardware can be made, like a robot or an Internet device (Internet of Things)
Follow-up assignment: what went wrong in Scratch?
One of our students programmed with Scratch. However, something went wrong. Do you see what exactly went wrong?
Bike ride to Fontys
If you think of Holland you think of bikes. There are in fact more bikes than citizens. How do our international students experience this typical Dutch habit...
