Let's Code With Ozobots!

Help me give my students a new coding tool, the Evo Bots classroom set of Ozobots. Ozobots help teach robotics and programming. They inspire curiosity, creativity, and invention through connected play and coding.

My Students

I compare my second grade classroom to a one-room schoolhouse. One classroom, with a diverse population of learners.

I have 24 diverse learners, all working on different levels, skills, and paces between reading, writing, math, spelling, science, social studies, technology, and basic child development.

I encourage all my students to work at their individual levels. They all have specific skills to build upon, whether it be high-level reading or writing, or basic fine motor skills. I engage them with hands-on learning and differentiated choice. They have many opportunities to build upon their strengths. I provide time for communication both orally and written. I also provide time for play, where the students are able to develop social and problem-solving skills among themselves. I am very structured within our daily routines and schedules, but within these parameters, they are given opportunities for choice, creative expression, communication, and collaboration.

My Project

I am seeking a class set of 18 Ozobots. I plan to use the Ozobot robots to engage students in a creative and hands-on learning environment. Ozobots will allow students to begin using basic programming concepts by using the robots to read color codes on paper. The Ozobot curriculum uses the Next Generation Science Standards. The use of Ozobot robots will also help students become more independent learners as well as introduce them to 21st century computing skills. Students will work together to analyze, test, and report their findings. Ozobots will allow students to learn in a fun and inviting environment. Students need to connect classroom learning to real world career opportunities. I feel working and creating with the Ozobot robots will give them this opportunity. There is also the option to move beyond the paper color codes to using technology to incorporate concepts such as variables, functions, and logic. This project can be inclusive to all ability levels.

Ozobots allow students to learn coding through hands-on activities in a curious, creative, and collaborative learning environment.

These are a wonderful way to incorporate STEAM into the classroom while preparing students for the rapidly growing technology job force.

My second graders are quickly becoming mini engineers!
