In the online session, we shared what we have done so far with our classmates. And after hearing others' achievements, I felt that our team need to catch up on the domain research part since we only did some research for coding, but for the domain Creative Learning, we have not done much research.
After the session, I and my team have discussed the coming assessment proposal. We shared the screen and try to understand what we should do in each part.
Everything went well, but our idea about the concept has been a little separated. One team member wants to make an AR coding system by using the projected and computer and use the robot only as feedback for users. Others want to teach the people to code by programming the robot. Therefore, we separated into two teams focus on different concepts, but the good thing is we all focus on the domain of creative learning and coding learning, so we still can share the resources.
This week, I focused on the research of my domain and coding learning area. I have done some research on creative learning principles, and the situated model of creative learning is inspiring to me:
- Immersion in the topic of interest, in traditions and in the subject matter;
- Experimentation and inquiry learning;
- Resistance from the material of interest .
For coding learning, from the research, the example is inspiring to me:
As you can see, the system display three screens, which are helpful for feeding the gap between simple language and real coding language. And the form of block is also fascinating for users, and also helpful for people's understanding of the structure of the coding language. So I am also considering using the block to help users organize the code, especially for those who have not learned to code before.
I did some interviews about the users' intended experience about a coding game, the results shown below:
