Workbooks for the Foundation phase are now available.
Coding and Robotics in the Foundation Phase consist of the following Knowledge Strands:
- Pattern Recognition and Problem Solving.
- Algorithms and Coding.
- Robotic Skills.
- Internet and E-Communication skills.
- Application Skills.
These workbooks follow the curriculum in the prescribed order.
Themes from the Life Skills curriculum are often used to encourage cross-curricular activities.
The Engineering Design Cycle is followed, and principles of Computational thinking are applied in activities.
Unplugged activities are included as far as possible in case the learners do not have access to computers or do not have wi-fi access for phones.
Learners are also encouraged to be aware of their thinking processes (metacognition) by using the six thinking hats from Edward de Bono’s book, “The Six Thinking Hats”.
All goals, summary of facts to present in each lesson and solutions to activities are available in a teacher’s guideline e-book from Snapplify
