Deep Into the Core: Sphero Bolt Integrates Learning

Help me give my students a Sphero Bolt robot and Ipad/Cover to help them incorporate technology into their core curriculum. The Sphero Bolt will allow all students at my school an opportunity to experience technology beyond the basics.

My Students

The preK- 5 students at my school are inquisitive, appreciative, and educational sponges. These students have the capability to be world changes and soak up new experiences when given the opportunity. These students pull at my heart because they come from a community of low socioeconomic backgrounds lacking in experiences. I see so much potential in these students, and I want to provide much needed background knowledge and opportunities to feed their inquisitive minds. What I love about the students at my school is that they do not take their learning for granted, and they are capable of being world changers when given the opportunity.

My Project

A Sphero Robot will make technology, coding, and core content integration accessible to all teachers and students at my school. The Sphero is a way to provide technology and coding into core subjects beyond playing educational games on iPads and computers. With the Sphero, teachers and students can collaborate on project based learning and coding robots to enhance the core curriculum already in place. The Sphero will take learning outside of the workbook pages and into real life technological problem solving. Students at my school are lacking in real educational experiences beyond the classroom textbooks and their streets. The Sphero Robot will give these students higher order learning, background knowledge, and experiences that are needed to fuel their minds and lead them into the future of becoming world changers.
