This lesson uses videos to teach critical life and technology skills:
- With a partner, create a presentation that applies programming terms to everyday objects.
- Write code to find and highlight one overused word in a document.
- Expand the program to find several overused words.
- Write code to highlight all the overused words in their document in different colors.
- Explain why some problems can be solved more easily by computers or humans based on a general understanding of types of tasks at which each student excels.
- Use iterative development and debugging to explore the problem domain.
- Recognize that different solutions exist for the same problem.
- Write a computer program to automate a task.
- Create a program that implements an algorithm to achieve a given goal, individually and collaboratively.
- Recognize that programs need known initial conditions (e.g., set initial score to zero in a game, initialize variables, or initial values set by hardware input).
