Pixel Press Floors - Pixel Press > Pixel Press Floors app – You’ll need an iPad to “Create-from-Paper” and play – and you can create directly in the app just like you would on paper using touch or a stylus with our “Draw-In-App” tools. > Paper, Pencil & our Sketch Guide (optional) – Print the free Sketch Guide at home (visit projectpixelpress.com to download the PDF) and take a picture of what you create with your iPad’s camera. The glyphs you draw (for example an “x” is a spike and a “+” is a coin) are transformed into gameplay objects. From there you can apply a design to the element, test it, and play it. It’s that simple, and once you learn the glyphs, you’ll be creating like a pro. Full instructions on how to create can be found in our Sketch Guide and How-to Videos at projectpixelpress.com.

The Complete iOS 7 Course - Learn by Building 14 Apps - bitfountain Section 4 - Challenge 1: Age of Laika Section 5 - If Statements Section 6 - Challenge 2: For Loops How to teach coding and programming From playing about with animations to designing computer games, teaching coding in schools lends itself to plenty of fun learning activities. The topic was introduced last year as part of the new information communication technology (ICT) curriculum, to equip students with the skills they’ll need for the future workplace. So this week on the Guardian Teacher Network we’ve been exercising our digital logic to bring together a selection of ideas and resources about teaching computer programming and coding. Primary schools A great starting place for anyone unfamiliar with the new computing curriculum is the Computing at School (CAS) QuickStart Computing website, which features continued professional development (CPD) materials designed to help primary and secondary teachers deliver the new curriculum.
80+ Best Free Hacking Tutorials Learning to become hacker is not as easy as learning to become a software developer. I realized this when I started looking for learning resources for simple hacking people do. Even to start doing the simplest hack on own, a hacker requires to have in depth knowledge of multiple topics. Some people recommend minimum knowledge of few programming languages like C, Python, HTML with Unix operating system concepts and networking knowledge is required to start learning hacking techniques. Though knowing a lot of things is required, it is not really enough for you to be a competent and successful hacker. You must have a passion and positive attitude towards problem solving.
Python / Functions Python: Functions Python/Functions at YouTube slides PDF Hello, and welcome to the eighth episode of the Software Carpentry lecture on Python. In this episode, we'll show you how functions work, and how to define new functions of your own. 7 Online Tools to Make Custom Learning Games (No Coding Required!) By Elizabeth Kahn It is a fact that even in the 21st century, students need to study and review information they’ve been taught in class. In fact, many scientific studies have asserted that learning doesn’t take place without repetition. Study guides created by the teacher or student in the form of lists may help when a student is preparing to take a test but may not be the best route for learning. There are many digital tools that allow teachers and students to create games to make the repetition of information fun, rather than a chore.
Teach Coding in the Classroom: Resources from ISTE '14 I was super excited to attend Hack Education (originally called “EdubloggerCon”), an all-day unconference held the Friday before the formal start of ISTE 2014. This interactive day of learning, now in its eighth year, was touted to me as the event to attend in Atlanta, and it did not disappoint. The informal, small-group conversations were inclusive and welcoming. 2.2. Declaring Functions Python has functions like most other languages, but it does not have separate header files like C++ or interface/implementation sections like Pascal. When you need a function, just declare it, like this: def buildConnectionString(params): Note that the keyword def starts the function declaration, followed by the function name, followed by the arguments in parentheses. Multiple arguments (not shown here) are separated with commas. Also note that the function doesn't define a return datatype.
