The LBGL modules have been extended to include 6 new ones, as in the image below:
From top left: pulse, toggle switch, motor, servo, pulse (duplicate as the original one is flakey), pressure sensor, light sensor, bargraph LED, sound trigger, LED, vibration motor, bend sensor, power module, RGB LED and push switch.
We will be testing out these modules this week on our Tower group, to see how well they understand what each module is intended to do. We will start by giving them a demo using a simple push switch, as we assume they are already familiar with this object (though I think we should still ask them first to tell us what they think it does). Then we’ll let them experiment as a small group (6 people) to find out what each modules does. We’ll video the session so that we can review it later. We’re hoping to find out which modules offer the best affordances, and also generate ideas for improving the modules which are difficult to understand.
