7th Grade Computer Programming

The second screen-cast is by 7th grade learner. This student has been learning computer programming as an extra-curricular activity for 3 months. After the exploratory phase of modeling simple objects like a slice of pizza and the original Mario Bros. sprite character, Isaac began incorporating his computer programming to creating a diagram of the solar system using purely coding. Using his new found computer programming skills Issac was able to make a new twist on the old-fashioned solar system model exercise using technology to satisfy a learning target in Earth and the Universe. Below he describes how he then created his own blogs for learning computer programming.
