The Smart City self-study course is made up of several individual modules and covers the various basic programming concepts. The course consists of numerous programming examples, learning videos and H5P exercise content. In addition, small tests are used after each chapter to test the knowledge. Subsequently, a complete simulation of a city powered by renewable energy is created. In the school year 2020/21, the course was taught online under pandemic conditions. In addition, the course was taught by two other teachers (from outside the subject area). All runs were evaluated with questionnaires. Both teachers were interviewed. Current practice shows that the simplicity of snap! installation and operation allows quick access for students, even from home. The use of snap! is intended to make it easier for beginners to get started in programming. This run will be reported on during the Talk.

The Secrets & Surprises in Coding Spirals:
TurtleStitch Tur-torial

Cynthia Solomon, Sarah Magner,

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION In this workshop, we will focus on building blocks that allow you to play with polygons and spirals with TurtleStitch. If you create a design you love and do not have access to a computerized embroidery machine, global TurtleStitch community friends will embroider & mail you your design!

TurtleStitch is an activity and a coding environment. TurtleStitching is a mi...


Grand Gestures
Storytelling with AI

Jens Mönig, Jadga Hügle

In this workshop we'll share a curriculum around AI that we're currently working on. We try to show how to use machine learning in the classroom by implementing a gesture recognizer (based on the $1 gesture recognizer) in Snap!

We start by creating a single-stroke gesture drawing program.
By building an "animate" control structure based on the pen trails, we are able to animate our drawn...


Codification (Transformation) of GUI Elements and database structures from SNAP to Python
From blocks language to typing language by SNAP Code conversion

Matthias Kim

Codification means to create Python code directly out of SNAP Code via a mapping SNAP blocks to Python code. The created Python Code via codification in SNAP is downloaded and runs immediately in Python. This has been useful in supporting the steps from SNAP development in a blocks language to a typing language. I would like to show how we enhanced codification with GUI elements: There a...
