    Stage 1 (Phase 1. Age 5–7)

    Unit 2. Creating Media – Digital Painting

    In this section, students will develop their understanding of a range of tools used for digital painting. They will use these tools to create their own digital paintings, while gaining inspiration from a range of artists’ work. The unit concludes with learners considering their preferences when painting with and without the use of digital devices.

    Stage 1 (Phase 1. Age 5–7)

    Unit 3. Programming A – Moving a robot

    This unit introduces students to basic programming concepts. Students will experiment with using individual commands both in collaboration with other students and as part of a computer program. They will figure out what each floor robot command does and use that information to start predicting what programs will do. The unit is set up in a way that makes sure time is spent on all parts of programming and builds knowledge in a structured way. Learners are also exposed to the early stages of program design through the use of algorithms.

    Stage 1 (Phase 1. Age 5–7)

    Unit 4. Data and Information – Grouping Data

    This unit introduces learners to the concepts of data and information. Important parts of data and information include labeling, grouping, and searching. In many applications, searching is a common operation that requires learners to understand that data must have labels in order to be searchable. This unit of work concentrates on assigning data (images) with various labels to show learners how computers can group and display data.

    Stage 1 (Phase 1. Age 5–7)

    Unit 6. Programming B – Introduction to animation

    This lesson uses ScratchJr to expose students to on-screen programming. To understand how a project looks, students will investigate sprites and backgrounds. Students will learn to develop and edit programs with the aid of programming blocks. Through the use of algorithms, students will be introduced to the early phases of program design.
