Robotics and Computer Science for Elementary Level Learners @JackieGerstein

Robotics and Computer Science for Elementary Level Learners @JackieGerstein | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
I absolutely love all of the new robotics toys that have been coming out for elementary age learners.  I have been using them for my summer maker camp, with my gifted education classes, and for my upcoming Saturday morning program. One of my gifted girls noted, “Where do all of these robots come from?” I laughed and told her, “It’s actually has become one of my passions. Collecting them has become a major hobby of mine.”

I usually use them for an hour per week with my two groups of gifted learners.  I am an advocate of student-centric learning and giving them choices as to which instructional activities they would like to engage. For their robotics hour each week, I am giving them the following choices with their goal of using five of the robotics to complete five of the tasks provided.

WOW! It's up from 10 years old. So I am seriously thinking about to buy it for myself and playing around with it ;) I was playing around with LEGO in my youth and I recommend it as it is one of the BEST ways to boost Creativity in kids!
