All decisions we make require different levels of consideration and planning. This activity will teach us these things as well as how to be resilient when our initial steps don't go as planned. This will also teach us the time and effort people go into making something as simple as a movement game and not take a product's result for granted, even if it isn't as smoothly designed as we would have hoped.

Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

ACTDIP020 - experimenting with different options that involve repeat instructions, for example, a continually repeating slideshow, a repeated movement in an animation, a repeated calculation in a spreadsheet - planning and implementing a solution using a visual programming language, for example designing and creating a simple computer game involving decisions and repetitions, suitable for younger children, that requires user input to make selections, taking into account user responses ACTDIP018 - designing the user interface of a solution using different design tools, for example using a storyboard to outline the stages of a game or a mock-up to show the placement of icons - generating and considering alternative designs for a user interface, for example sketching different concepts for a splash screen of a game or interactive multimedia experience
