Each child in my K-4 classroom absolutely loves learning and showing how they can be successful in a non-typical classroom. My students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They love to come to my computer lab setting and learn with computer science tools that are not available in their home or regular classroom. It allows all the students to be successful with multiple types of assessment for the same assignment. They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to learn, explore, and try new things so they can grow both mentally, emotionally, and academically.
My students are always involved, excited, and imaginative; my students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of Computer Science challenge.
Bringing droids into my classroom will help my students have a choice on how to incorporate code into their learning environment. Coding and Computer Science is a new skill I want to incorporate into my curriculum by the use of coding droids. By having multiple options for the students, they are seeing how coding/ problem-solving skills are used in different droids/robots and activities; therefore having a differentiated learning environment for all students.
In a technology driven world, any interaction with relevant technology will increase their academics as well as their desire to learn and use the new technology!
By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student problem solving skills using Computer Science, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
