Wonder Workshop’s Amazing Dash

Ask a Tech Teacher

Education has many disruptors–3D Printing, AR and VR, 1:1 technology, STEM, and STEAM–but a recent and wildly popular one is robotics. One I discovered this summer is Wonder Workshop’s collection of three robots — Cue, Dash, and Dot. Before I dig into Dash, let me tell you about his creator, Wonder Workshop. What is Wonder Workshop? According to Wonder Workshop, Dash is. Robotics Competition. Wonder Workshop PD.

Looking for a Class Robot? Try Robo Wunderkind

Ask a Tech Teacher

There are a lot of options if you want to bring programmable robots to your classroom. It is a build-a-robot kit designed to introduce children ages six and up to coding and robotics as well as the fun of problem-solving and creative thinking. The robot starts in about thirty pieces (there are so many, I didn’t really count them). You don’t use all of them in one robot, just pick those that will make your robot do what you want.

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.
