Student Post - Strand Session 3 - Robotics Learnings
Lots of different types of programming to look at. I think they are pretty kid friendly as the puzzle piece drag and drop is something I know they will like. I think as with all new learnings it will take a while to get good at but I like the idea of students helping students and find that it usually works fairly well with students. I had never used pico at all and had a hard time with that. I was amused that even though I had used Mindstream once, I found it difficult too but I found the little bit we did with Scratch a bit easier. I think it was because we worked with altering the existing games. Having a format to follow or alter was simpler. All in all, it was fun to do and interesting to think about doing with my own students.
