Breakout Session 3 [clear filter]
Friday, October 26

12:00pm CDT

CANCELLED: Oh, Oh, Robots
STEM, MakerSpace, robotics - the words conjure pictures of fun, activity, and excitement. And all of that can be found but sometimes the challenge is to link the activity to learning and critical thinking.

Children love to play with robots such as Dash and Dot, Ozobots, and Spheros but moving the activity from play to learning is where the magic happens. There are resources and curriculum to support learning and we will explore ways to integrate the skills needed for the robots to reinforce the concepts students are developing in the classroom. A list of resources will be included and attendees will be encouraged to share their own ideas and resources.
