Help me give my students the excitement of learning to code with a hands-on interactive robot
The students I have the privilege of working with are from culturally diverse backgrounds. They are our community's future thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, and leaders. Unfortunately, most of them face challenges outside of school and do not always have the opportunity to participate in and practice 21st Century Skills. My goal is to change that!
We encourage one another to persevere and never stop trying.
As a teacher, I create an inviting, comfortable atmosphere within our classroom walls to allow my students to feel confident to take chances, try new things, and make mistakes in order to grow as learners. I love when I overhear my students say," let me help" or "have you tried to do it this way?" or " thanks, that's a great idea". We work hard at listening and respecting each other.
This awesome group of learners love projects and to be challenged every day. They work in groups a lot of the time, which enables them to solve problems, look at things from another point of view, and practice communication skills. I am guiding them to become life-long learners.
This project will let my students experience coding on a whole new level. The Wonder Workshop robot is used in classrooms throughout the world and is an innovative and fun way for students to learn coding skills.
This project will be used to introduce hands-on coding lessons for boys and girls of diverse backgrounds.
I believe every student should be given the opportunity to experience hands-on, interactive fun technology based experiences. By having this as a resource, I am hopeful students will fall in love with technology and coding and continue to pursue activities in the field of STEM.
I plan to also use this project in my after school STEM club.
