My students need Botley Coding Robots to learn how to code! Technology is now, technology is the future. We need to make sure that today's children are ready for that future!!
All of my students are diagnosed with emotional disabilities, which affects their behavior, social skills, and access to academics. They are making progress, but continue to need support to control their feelings and behavior, to maintain a calm demeanor while they try to navigate through their school day to learn. Often, they are easily frustrated during routine academic demands, miscues during social interactions, and internal stimuli that they are often unable to express verbally.
Several of my students also have a dual diagnosis of autism, health and or developmental delay, which further hinders their academic, emotional, behavioral, and social growth: They have needs that cannot be met in the regular education classroom.
Several of my students cannot tolerate other people to look at them, speak to them, or to touch them, they struggle to be accepted and to accept others. It takes a lot of consistent effort, creativity and patience to help my students to feel safe in their surroundings, and with each other. This year they will be spending more time learning in pairs and small groups of 3 or 4; working on projects that encourage movement, participation, peer trust, tolerance, and enduring friendships.
My students keep asking if they can learn about robots. This discussion happens several times a month and I never seriously considered it...because I don't even understand it. However, when I saw the Botley Robot and read about how easy it can be to learn, I decided to give it a try. I am requesting several Botley robot packs for my students.
My students will be so beyond excited to learn coding and I will be learning it with them!
I hope coding really can be easy to learn. I am always trying to help my students to persevere when something seems like it may be too hard for them. I'm sure they will do the same for me!
