I work in a Title I school, with a diverse population. It contains a variety of ethnic groups and a large ESL population. We have a diverse population of students from all over the world who are faced with challenges everyday such as homelessness, poverty and much, much more.
Despite so many hardships, our students have a love for learning new and challenging things in new and engaging ways.
Our students often lack exposure at home to tools that incorporate computer science skills and also sparks their imagination. Students are excited to learn computer science skills that will prepare them for the future in a 21st-century world.
These coding robots will help students to learn how to persevere through challenging tasks using computational thinking. Students will use the Cozmo bot to complete specific task through coding. Cozmo allows students to play games, communicate, and code with a cute robot friend. Cozmo tells jokes, plays games, and moves through obstacles with student help.
Not only will Cozmo be used in my math classroom with standards in measurement and shapes but Cozmo will also be used a “class pet”.
Using the robots for math can make teaching distances, time, and angles engaging and exciting! Cozmo teaches responsibility because students must feed him, exercise with him and play with him in order for him to stay engaged.
