Needles And Pins.

The celebration is here and our Creatives can use al the hands available to help them sew a few more flags.

Pick up your Sphero and weave your light strokes over the grid.

Use the light in the Sphero as your thread. It's like painting with light.

The Steps.

Here is my story:

First practise the cross-stitch in Notes. Open a new note, tap on the share icon and add a grid.

Then tap on the screen with your Apple pencil to draw the movement of the cross-stitch.

Next the coding part comes in, so go ahead and open Swift Playgrounds.

Tap on See All at the lower right hand corner. Scroll to the Sphero section and download the Sphero template.

Next tap on the template in your library to open it.

To connect, hold you robot near your iPad. Make sure Bluetooth is on.

Tap Connect Robot and look for your robot in the list. Tap on it to connect.

Tap on the list icon at the upper left hand corner and select Drive.

Write the code for your cross-stitch and select a color for your thread.

When you are ready to give it a go, just tap on Run My Code.

Observe your result and edit where necessary.

Going Further.

Record your result using the Slow Shutter app.

This is one of the activities that educators can participate in during The Playground at ISTE.
