GAME STAGES

1. Setting the task

The app assigns the player a task. Players read the task and analyse it. Then they plan the sequence of commands that will make Scottie get to the right spot, avoid any obstacles, pick up objects, start a device and so on.The combination of all these actions will lead to the completion of the objective.

2. Writing commands

The player starts writing commands. Each command starts with the START tile, and ends with the FINISH piece. Between those two tiles, players place the command sequence. Some of the commands require a parameter, for example the number of steps a given character is to take.

3. Checking the solution

After clicking the “Camera” button, the players will switch to scanning mode. At this point, the command is registered, detected and interpreted and, within a fraction of a second, converted into Scottie’s motion. The app will also analyse the correctness of the command suggested, and will check if the objectives have been accomplished. After completing the task, the players receive some feedback. If the command is correct, Scottie will carry out the task, otherwise players will be asked to rewrite the command. If the command is too long, players will be encouraged to optimise it (i.e. to shorten it).

Programming in and outside the class room

Scottie Go! allows you to run classes in diverse places, on various occasions, on different devices and in many different ways. After the installation on a device (Android or iOS mobile device, or a PC with Windows), the game does not require internet connection, which translates into the fact that it is possible to run a class wherever you want, even in a place where there is no IT infrastructure, e.g. school common rooms, corridors or even outside the building.

The game can be effectively used even if there are not enough devices for each student. Even if only the teacher has a computer device, the tasks can be shown on a screen; once the students have completed their command lines, the teacher can test them by scanning them with the computer device. The teacher can switch to student account before taking a picture of the command line, so the students’ results will be stored.
