I am teaching CS Discoveries in a high-school setting this year, and am looking for a planned sub day activity to fill in after lesson 4.3. I do not want to have students move on to 4.4 yet, and am wondering if anyone has ideas of inspirational TED talks or another self-paced activity that students could engage with while I take a day out of the classroom. I am looking for ideas specifically focused on the Design Process. I have already showed students IDEO’s Shopping cart design video.
You might consider using one of the existing projects for App Lab that go with the Hour of Code. They are made to be independent and are easily stretched to fit whatever you might need. Check out this page and see if any of it might work for you. Good luck hunting! https://code.org/educate/applab
