New Programmers Need Robots to Program

My Students

Our school serves students from all neighborhoods of Los Angeles, and many of these students come from different countries or speak other languages before English. The truly heterogeneous diversity gives students the chance to learn about one another's experiences, respect the cultures of others, and develop empathy. Some of our highest-need students come from homes that are not safe (or even no home) and face challenges beyond what most children have to endure just to get to school and be students.

Our students are an overwhelmingly interdependent group who support one another and encourage behaviors that will help achieve success.

They are dedicated to learning and are well-rounded in their activities and their talents. Our students want to make the world a better place, and the right educational opportunities will prepare them to do just that!

My Project

Our school is offering an introductory ninth-grade Computer Science course to open up a multi-year pathway. The course requires a unit on robotics, and these Edison V2.0 robots would enable students to transfer their knowledge from our programming unit into telling these robots what to do.

In particular, the format and appearance of the Edison robots' block programming is an accessible transition from the programming unit from Scratch.

These Edison robots are the robots specifically recommended in our curriculum designed by a UCLA/LAUSD partnership and the Professional Development at the Pathfinders Summer Institute. We need to have at least these six robots so that groups of students can work with them rather than just crowding around to watch as the teacher or a single student performs the tasks and discoveries. As a 21st century school offering a course on becoming creators rather than just consumers of technology, we need to put moldable and changeable technology into the students' hands.
