Integrating Coding and Robotics into the Classroom

edWeb.net

Coding and robotics programs in classrooms reflect how integral technology is in our lives. In a recent edWebinar , Kalthoff and Bartel explain that they want to coach students and not just tell them what button to push or the correct sequences to move a robot across a mat. The best approach to introducing robots to K-8 students is as an exploratory program that will interestingly evolve into coding programs that challenge students with more complex projects.
