Information Communication Technology (ICT)

Coding is considered as an essential skill of the future. Loganlea State High School has commenced preparing our junior cohort with those essential skills. Last year at Loganlea State High School Juniors developed fun and purposeful games, programmed robots and Arduinos and created simple websites. They learnt basic computer programming languages and concepts, developed computational thinking skills, designed, developed and evaluated projects and gained an understanding of how to use technology safely and respectfully.
 
Year 8 students develop knowledge on basic programming and computational thinking using Minecraft, composing programs that control a turtle (robot in a virtual environment) to complete various challenges like cutting down a hill or building a structure. This fun and engaging program is a good starting point for students developing code, solving problems and making games.

Year 9 students learn various programming languages and complete various projects. Having the opportunity to engage in Learning and developing a simple website using HTML codes, developing their programing knowledge by programing a turtle in Mincraft to accomplish various challenges, Learning a new programing language (C/C==) and programming an Arduino and Sparkiduino (Robot), Developing their own app for an Android device.
