#PeaceLoveCode - Using Coding to Build a Positive Online Image PBL Project

Students will learn basic computer language programming and use coding to build a positive online image. They will start by learning to write out clear instructions (algorithm) that others can follow, analyzing problems and fixing errors in our programs (debugging), and finally coding a unique emoji to build their positive online image. Students will launch their Peace Love Code Campaign to begin building the positive image of their work. They will post their #PeaceLoveCode campaign and add positive comments about their school or about other students in their campaign. Lesson 1: Students will learn that computers follow instructions we give them, called programming, and create a sequence of instructions, called algorithm, for a computer to follow in order to complete a task. Lesson 2: Through this lesson, students will continue to develop their understanding of basic computer programming, learn the importance of clear communication to avoid bugs and use technology to create a positive self image. Lesson 3: This lesson will teach students to identify problems, learn the steps to problem solving, and the solutions that come out of the problem solving process. The steps involved in the process are 1) define, 2) prepare, 3) try, and 4) reflect. Lesson 4: They will utilize the skills they have built up in the previous lessons; the importance of clear directions (algorithm), problem solving (debugging), and using computers to build programs and shape a positive online image. This project is brought to you by Ethel Fimbres with support from the CTE Online curriculum leadership team and detailed coordination provided by Team Lead Josh Bradley.
