B4 Graphics Extension Kit
This extension kit adds graphics output capabilities to the B4 Computer Processor kit. The B4’s Dot Matrix Display Module can output ASCII-style characters and symbols on a 4 by 5 LED matrix. In addition, students can program 16 of the LEDs separately and thus design their own graphics. This lesson plan follows the B4-style bottom-up motivational approach, in which computing concepts are introduced by need and motivated by context. Students gain an understanding of the practical necessity of computer graphics concepts and learn about them from a hardware and a software perspective. The result is a deeper and more natural understanding of Digital Technologies.
Some of the experiments:
- Producing Graphics Output
- Automating Graphics Output
- Making Maths Artwork
This kit has been designed with the new Australian Curriculum: Digital Technologies in mind.
