Robotics in TK-3rd: Play-Based Learning in a Culture of Inquiry

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Come see how you can easily and inexpensively integrate robotics as part of your kindergarten learning activities! Discover the basics of programming with Ozobots. These tiny robots fit in the palm of your hand and are available for approximately $55 each. They can be programmed in two ways: by using paper and coloured markers already available in your classroom, or by using visual coding through Ozoblockly, a block programming online editor. No iPads or special apps required!
Come try our challenges designed to get your students communicating, collaborating and thinking critically! Session Resources
Learning Objectives - Participants will be able to:
- identify which abilities robotics can help students develop
- recognize the importance of sequential reasoning and computational thinking skills
- understand how to introduce robotics and coding to TK-3rd level students
- demonstrate how the Ozobot can be used to teach programming basics
- share ideas on using robotics in early learning programs
