Have you ever had to start over? Every four years? Our school is located on Air Force base housing with a 100% military population. My students have worldly experience through their deployments and military life experience. They are determined, responsible, and have empathy toward their peers. They have a variety of backgrounds and schema based on their military lives. This can, at times, hinder their progress in academics. However, our students are pushing through any obstacles that they face -- and will continue to do so!
My students need to be engaged beyond the basic curriculum and learn the basics of computer coding with the Ozobot system. Ozobot gives the students the power to build routes and overcome obstacles by coding paths for a robot to follow. Students can create challenges for their peers to conquer as well. Engagement through technology!
This Ozobot robots, construction kit, and accessories will engage my students in critical thinking and help them blossom with problem-solving capabilities through coding.
Working together to solve challenges will also foster communication and collaboration skills. Ozobot has created accessory kits, like the construction kit, to make the challenges engaging and give the children a task to complete by programming their robot. The Ozobot system introduces the basics of computer coding and uses tablets to introduce challenges and computer coding terms. We also need an iPad mini case to protect our tablets.
