Ozobots - Connecting Through Coding!

My Students

I am a new media coordinator in a high needs, high poverty elementary school (95% receive free or reduced breakfasts and lunches). We have some really great kids here, but many are living in traumatic situations, which can make it hard to excel. This school year, we have been granted restart status, and teachers and administration are committed to helping our students succeed.

As a new teacher/librarian I am determined to help make a difference in the lives of my students.

I have been working on collecting makerspace items and new reading materials, but I can't do it on my own. I have slowly introduced coding and robotics concepts, and my students have been so engaged! Not only is coding a skill that will be beneficial for students going forward, it also enforces both math and literacy skills! I would like to offer more learning opportunities for them, but will require additional supplies. Please consider helping my students ahceive academic success!

My Project

I want to use Ozobots in my media center to engage my students with coding activities. These robots will be used in small group settings, and can be tied in with literacy and STEAM lessons. Coding will allow students to experiment and problem solve together and help develop social skills.

Coding with Ozobots will connect my students to the curriculum, their peers, and today's technoligies!

Ozobots use simple coding techniques that allow students to plot a course for their robot to follow. Possible lessons include taking Ozobot on a story path, coding Ozobot to follow a weather pattern, or using trial and error to race Ozobots and find the fastest coding pattern. There are so many different uses for Ozobot!
