About this lesson
Use the slide sorter function to arrange a set of presentation slides in correct sequence to retell a fairytale.
Year band: F-2Achievement Standard
Design solutions to simple problems using a sequence of steps and decisions.
By the end of Year 2, students identify how common digital systems (hardware and software) are used to meet specific purposes. They use digital systems to represent simple patterns in data in different ways.
Students design solutions to simple problems using a sequence of steps and decisions. They collect familiar data and display them to convey meaning. They create and organise ideas and information using information systems, and share information in safe online environments.
Opportunity to also assess:
General capability: Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Capability
- Managing and operating ICT
This task can be used for formative assessment purposes or as a summative assessment task to assess what students have learned as a result of exploring algorithms to create a sequence of steps to retell a narrative.
Provide students with printed pictures, a jumbled slide presentation containing images/text of the fairytale or ask students to create their own images or drawings.
Ask the student to retell the story using their images placed in the correct sequence.
- Are there enough images to tell the story? Could you add any other images?
- Are some images more important than the others?
- Why is the order of the images important?
- How can you work out if the order is correct?
- Are the images in the correct order? Has text been added to help retell the story?
- Is the story retold accurately?
- Were there any errors that needed fixing?
Use the assessment checklist provided to record comments for each student.
Relevant Revised Blooms taxonomy
The key active verbs used in the Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies have been aligned to Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy.
In this task students explain and represent. The related Revised Blooms taxonomy are:
- (design): Plan and evaluate the construction of a product or process (ACARA).
This assessment checklist provides a guide to record the student’s demonstrated skills and knowledge.
