Ozobots: Coding Robots as a Lens Through Which to Leverage Experiential Learning?

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

Design, code, build, test and reflect. With two ways of being able to code, these tiny robots allow for classroom flexibility in engaging students with coding and creating technology. Students can code the Ozobots away from a screen using different coloured markers, or can use the Ozoblockly program. As such, these little robots make coding readily accessible at any level but activities can be scaled up to meet the needs of older or more advanced learners. Join WISEST in this session where we discuss how using Ozobots can change students from consumers of technology to creators of technology and can help address EDI issues in the classroom.
