Angry birds

Throughout the week i had a little play around with the ‘Angry birds’ game. This is a great activity for students to use to help them to understand the meaning of coding. In the game you are given challenges which make it harder to move on to the next level. You are given steps to move the angry bird so that it gets to the green pig without getting blown up or running into a wall of boxes or sharp objects. I believe this is a really easy and interesting game to use, because the codes are already labelled and ready to use. This online activity links to both strands in the Digital technologies Australian curriculum. This game helps to provide knowledge and understanding of how to use coding. The game also helps students to learn process and production skills by playing the game and following the algorithms within the game. I found this game one of the easiest so far. It is a simple game full of instructions and appropriate for primary school aged children. This game would be beneficial as students would learn quickly about algorithms and coding.Screen Shot 2015-05-08 at 11.11.54 am
