Help me give my students coding robots and materials that will help them develop problem-solving skills and an interest in computer science and programming which are careers currently in high demand.
My class is composed of 22 young minds who possess such incredible eagerness and excitement for learning. My students come from low socio-economical backgrounds and have limited English language proficiency. Their background knowledge, thus, is often limited as they have not had meaningful learning experiences of the world around them. Thus, they are often curious and amazed by the simplest of things, such as using a magnifying glass to observe ladybugs in a clear container.
Their knowledge-hungry minds demand a classroom environment where curiosity, creativity, and self-expression are the ground rules, and failure is expected as a step towards achieving goals.
These lovely 4-year-old children are simply not afraid of making mistakes, for we have become accustomed to celebrating "failures," as failures or mistakes indicate they have learned and are ready to move on towards success- whatever the task may be.
In the new globalized world we live in, the demand for computer science and programming will only increase as the decades come by. Learning to code from a young age such as 4 years old set a foundation for developing the interest of students in coding and robotics.
In the digital age we live in, learning how to code is no longer a luxury but rather a need.
My students will highly benefit from using Botley the Coding Robot as they develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that they will utilize across the subjects and for a lifetime.
Given the shortage of computer science majors and programming professionals today, it is only in everyone's best interest to get our young students involved and interested in computer science. As parents and teachers, we must strive to give our children the tools they need to thrive in an entrepreneurial and innovation-led society. Coding toys are a fun way to begin doing this in a Pre-K classroom.
