  • Topic: Digital Fabrication 1

Pre-class

  • This week we will practice two digital fabrications: 1) Machine Learning and 2) Arduino. Machine Learning is help you to learn the concept of artificial intelligence in a simple way that can be used in technology classroom easily.
  • Pre-class #1
    • Watch below video describing Artificial Intelligence and answer below questions.

    • What is Machine Learning?
    • List three examples of Machine Learning used in our daily lives?
  • Pre-class #2
    • Watch Arduino Intro video “What is Arduino?” by Programming Electronics Academy

    • Explain what Arduino is? What makes Arduino unique among other computing tools?
    • Setup Arduino development environment. Watch this video “Arduino IDE Setup Tutorial”
