Daisy the Dinosaur


Daisy the Dinosaur is good to introduce students to the basic concepts of coding. Beginning with ‘Challenge Mode’, students are encouraged (although never shown how) to make Daisy move around the screen. She can move, jump, spin, shrink and grow. The repeat function can be used, as can the ‘when’ (ie when I shake/touch the iPad) command, all through a simple drag and drop interface. Students can then move onto ‘free play’ mode, although once the small range of skills involved have been mastered, they will definitely be ready to move onto something a fair bit more challenging.
