47th Heraklion Primary School

Invite-only in-person activity

47ο Δημοτικό Σχολείο, Heraklion, Greece

6 class hours project for CodeWeek: In the first two class hours, the 6th grade students during the History discipline have to study the Minoan Civilization that fourished in Crete, Greece and the record the basic art expressions that they developed. They will then record the 5 most important murals (frescoes) that have been found by archaeologists in the Minoan Palaces and write 3-4 sentences for each one and download an image. In the next two hours, in Computer Lab, Alice 3.0 will be used to develop a 3D museum room with the 5 wall frescoes and a virtual narrator that will present information about each frescoe with text and recorded voice (students are already trained in coding with Alice 3.0). Makey Makey will be introduced so as the Alice program responds to touching of Makey Makey poles. The last 2 hours will be in the Arts discipline, where the children have to create a replica of a room with the frescoes in walls. Iron nails will be used for sending the signal of touch to the Makey Makey platform, so that the relevant frescoe is presented in the computer. ----------- UPDATE: Here is the result of the action

Everyone* is welcome to participate to my ILS with name Programming with Scratch for getting started with coding in Scratch 3.0. Scratch was developed by MIT and is the most used programming software in the world. This ILS introduces students to the online environment of Scratch. The target age group is 8-12 years old (still anyone can join) and the estimated duration is one class hour. Try this here *speaking English

Smart Classroom

Sat, Oct 9, 2021 12:00 AM

This is an AI learning activity. An AI learning activity is a short activity that encourages the use of AI tools and technologies in the classroom. In this AI activity called Smart Classroom, students will train a machine learning model to recognise the meaning of instructions. They will create a smart assistant in scratch allowing them to control virtual devices. This project aims to introduce students to the basics of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) by making their own machine learning powered project. This is team project, each team training their own ML Model and working with its own Scratch 3.0 program. All activities can be done remotely. This activity is for Lower Secondary School students (12-15) years old.

Paleontologist 4 Future(P4F)

Mon, Sep 20, 2021 8:00 AM

Paleontologists' Team (P4F) from the 32nd Primary School of Piraeus and their teacher,Margarita Dakoronia using the scratch junior, create short films that lead other paleontologists to discover fossils. Then they are led to the discovery of the fossil of a dinosaur.These fossils give them messages for the future of Earth.
