My Students

My Technology students are curious about creating digital games. The 7th grade students are spending this year learning the fundamentals of coding with HTML5 and Cascading Sheet Styles (CSS). The knowledge and skills that they are obtaining will assist them in understanding how web pages work and they can become producers rather consumers by taking these skills to the next level.

The students are middle schoolers in South Florida, attending a Title I school in which over 80% of the students are on free and reduced lunch plans.

They are excited to explore the world of technology, web design and gaming. They want to expand their capacity for critical thinking and problem solving. They take pride in their efforts and are willing to challenge their minds for the sake of learning.

My Project

Students will be using the Rubik's puzzle cube cube to understand the complex topic of algorithms for middle schoolers in computer programming. Many students are intimidated to attempt to solve the Rubik's cube. They tend to think that only 'smart' students solve the cube.

However, with a classroom set of Rubik's puzzle cubes the students can use critical-thinking and problem-solving skills to solved the cube.

By allowing the students to practice hands-on using their understanding of algorithms and applying with they are learning about algorithms can assist students with transferring these skills to programming gaming design as well as experience how the concept of gaming works. Students will see their own ideas of game creation come to life and make something tangible for a project that displays how learning the details of game creation can be interesting.

This project would significantly help my students' understanding of the gaming design cycle. They would see the process connect to a final product, relevant to themselves and impacting the world for better. Students can practice using design technology and experience careers related to it: programming, graphic design, modeling, and public policy. In the end, they will be problem-solvers, empowered to take the skills and knowledge in their class to improve their lives and those of people around them.
