turtleArt for everyone - cohort 1

turtleArt for everyone

We are inviting application for the first cohort of educators/students who are keen to explore turtleArt learning environment and integrate it in their classroom practice.

turtleArt is a great way to explore mathematical and programming concepts embedded in art-making centered context. It is inspired by LOGO, which is an educational programming language, designed by Papert et al. as a constructionist learning environment.

Here is the tentative outline:

Week 1

  • understanding turtleBlock platform

  • Exploring polygons I - variables, loops, conditional statements etc

Week 2

  • Exploring polygons II - nested loops

  • art related coding challenges

Week 3

  • Recursion

  • Generative Art

The module will be done in a blended mode in which we will have two one-hour-long live sessions every week follow up by some challenges to attempt asynchronously.

Requirements

  • Steady internet connectivity

  • Laptop/PC

There will be periodic reflection session along with discussions.

The orientation session will be on 6th June 2020 11:00AM.
