The (More Realistically Achievable) Droids We're Looking For

My students need the technology to drive their imaginations with Makerspace creations using Sphero robots.

My Students

For the past several years, our students have been engaged in becoming a culture of thinkers, a place where a group’s collective as well as individual thinking is valued, visible, and actively promoted as part of the regular, day-to-day experience of all group members. We recently adopted the Leader In Me program that helps teach our students leadership, accountability, adaptability, initiative and self-direction, cross-cultural skills, responsibility, problem solving, communication, creativity, and teamwork.

Our class of twenty-four thinkers are the leaders of the leaders.

They are burdened not only by being the model learners for their younger brothers, sisters, cousins, and friends that look up to them, but they also are on the verge of one of the biggest transitions of their lives as they prepare to enter the middle school with their six hundred new classmates.

My Project

There's no question that our students are at the precipice of a brand new world. They will be facing new challenges that we can only begin to imagine. They will be dealing with dilemmas that we haven't dreamed of yet. The twenty-first century skills that will be required to solve these problems need to be honed and developed at an early age.

Our students need every opportunity to practice and perfect the skills that they're going to need to change the world.

These robots, Spheros, will be the technology that drives our new makerspace; the environment that will provide them the freedom to explore, innovate, collaborate, create, make mistakes, and most importantly, have fun.
