INPUTS & OUTPUTS

November13

 

Goal:

I can identify the inputs and outputs on Edison and make a simple program that makes them work

 

APK:

In a computer system, inputs are defined as parts or places where information or messages can enter the system.

Outputs are defined as parts or places where information or actions can exit the system.

On a computer- what are the inputs (ways to put information IN to the computer)? What are the outputs (ways the computer can send something OUT of itself)?

 

 

Inputs- keyboard/ mouse/usb/Bluetooth/wifi….

Outputs- screen/speakers/printer/Bluetooth/wifi

Both input & output-usb

 

New Info/ Application:

 

Inputs: parts or places where information or messages can enter the system.

Outputs: parts or places where information or actions can exit the system.

HAND OUT EDISONS TO GROUPS

Look at your Edisons & the diagrams from lesson 1 & and identify all the inputs/outputs of an Edison

 

 

 

 

 

Inputs: Infra red/ obstacle detector/ cable/ light sensors/ sound sensor/buttons

Outputs: moving wheels/ lights (LEDs)/ beeping/Infra red

List them and identify which ones you are already familiar with how to make work, and which ones you are not sure how to get to work

Explore how to get them to input or output using coding on edScratch (log on to your account)-expert students (Fin, Hamish T, Hamish C, Callum) should move around room to share knowledge/ students should explore edScratch & turn various sensors on & create and program simple code that demonstrates as many input and output functions as possible.

 

 

They should be separate stand-alone code as simple as this:

 

which would prove knowledge of that output (wheels drive).

Each separate coding sequence should activate 1 type of input or output.

How many can you achieve?

 

List what you have managed to find out & what you are yet to find out

Goal reflection:

What might different inputs and outputs be models for if we are creating a Mars rover model?

 

 

 

e.g- driving could be driving/ IR could be sending or receiving messages from earth/ LEDs could be lasers…..
