What Are Interactive Notebooks?
Interactive note pads are based on a kind of programming called “literate shows,” pioneered by Stanford computer system scientist Donald Knuth. Literate programming stresses the readability of code, making it simpler for individuals to comprehend as well as customize.
What Can Children Make?
Take “Memory Suit,” the classic memory video game where you flip over 2 ceramic tiles at a time and also search for matches.
This game sets up the HTML canvas to show the graphics and also specifies pixel art for every style. It utilizes an array information structure to keep two of each kind of pattern, after that randomly shuffles these ceramic tiles. Whenever a tile is clicked, it updates the canvas to reveal the design as well as checks whether you’ve discovered two matching tiles. It inspects if the gamer has won by tracking how many ceramic tiles have been matched.
As they program or remix this video game, children find out about x- and y-coordinates, pixel art (straightforward art pieces specified one pixel at a time), variables, features, information structures, video game loops, video game reasoning, and also much more.
