Creative Storytelling with Robotics

Get ready for this twist on digital storytelling featuring robotics. In this cross-curricular workshop, we will discuss some best practices and things to consider when starting a storytelling project in your classroom. Then, we'll show you how to plan and code your device(s) to tell a story in a whole new way! We will also share some storytelling examples using one of our favorite robot friends, KIBO! You’ll get to try these skills out for yourself, so you too, can enhance your classroom's creativity!

Wonder Workshop’s Virtual Robot and Class Connect Webinar

Bring coding to life with Wonder Workshop’s Virtual Robot & Class Connect software, no robot necessary! In this webinar, we will review Class Connect, software that unlocks Dash’s Neighborhood, a Virtual Robot inside of

Blockly for Web and iOS. Kids can solve robot coding challenges by moving Dash around right on the screen in a rich, 3D environment. 

KIBO Advanced Coding Extension Set

Now that you and your students have mastered the basics of the KIBO Robot, it's time to kick it up a knoch.  Come and see how your students can advance their knowledge of coding concepts with the KIBO Advanced Coding Extension Set.  During this course we will talk about subroutines, "If Not' parameters and "Repeat Random" parameters.  We will also leave you with some activities to get you and your students started with each new concept.  Can't wait to see you there!  

Sphero Indi Basics

Come meet Sphero's newest member of the team-Indi!  Indi is an early education robot that offers both screen-free and app-based coding experiences.  Take a ride with us as we explore the color code tiles, personalization options, and the new SpheroEdu Jr. app.  

Finch Basics

Finch is a micro:bit-powered, programmable robot that can grow with your students from K-12 and beyond! With built-in sensors, buzzers, lights, and so much more, students can take their programming wherever their imagination takes them. Whether your students have never even heard of coding or are highly experienced, they can develop future ready skills with the Finch Robotics kit. In this session, we'll cover the basics, as well as the free educator resources offered by BirdBrain Technologies that can help you get started.

Kicking Off Conversations with KIBO

Building a strong class community is essential for a successful school year. Have your students get to know one another in a unique way using KIBO! Join us as we discover how to use KIBO to help students build relationships with their peers and practice critical 21st century skills. We'll review KIBO's features and share engaging activity ideas that are sure to get conversations flowing.

Teaching Narrative Arc with Ozobot for Elementary School Students

Are you looking for a unique way to teach storytelling elements to your students? Join us for a literary coding adventure as we explore how to use Ozobot to learn about narrative arc. These tiny robots can be used to trace a narrative arc and stop at designated points in a story to detail characters, setting, conflict, and resolution. We'll discuss the process of having students draw, code, and retell the story, and will explain how students can add speed, turns, and even color changes to their Ozobot to reflect the character’s feelings and actions.

Let's Create a Sphero Jack-o-Lantern

Looking for a technology-infused Halloween activity for your classroom? In this session, we'll guide you through an interactive lesson on how to "dress up" your Sphero and program it to be a spooky Jack-o-lantern! This session will focus on practicing 3D printing and coding skills as students learn to program Sphero. Students will also build collaboration and creativity skills as they work through the design process together.

Let's Get Rolling with KIBO

We’ve reviewed the basics, and looked at some fun ways to incorporate KIBO into lessons. Now it’s time to expand on KIBO’s abilities, and get rolling with its connections to the foundational physics concepts of motion, force, and friction!

Tech-Infused Learning: Ozobot and Perspectives in Literature

Enhance your language arts classroom with Ozobot! We'll show you how to use this line-following robot to explore different points of view in literature. You'll learn how to boost your students' character analysis — and their coding skills. This course is aimed at high school level literacy, but you can easily adapt it for younger readers and ELLs.

Putting the A in STEAM: Doodle-Bots

In this session, we'll explore how to make a simple doodle-bot from scratch, and then show you how to use robots like Dash, littleBits, Cubelets, and KIBO to create scribbling masterpieces.

Cubelets Basics

What better way to learn the building blocks of robotics than with actual robotic building blocks? Join us to learn about the different types of Cubelet sensor blocks and how to use them to create your own modular robot. Since there’s no wrong way to build with a Cubelet, the focus is on curiosity, collaboration, and practicing computational thinking.

Sphero SPRK+ Basics

Sphero SPRK+ is what happens when fun meets programming education. While coding and 21st century skills are necessary, Sphero also goes “beyond code” by incorporating robotics with collaborative STEAM activities that nurture students’ imaginations. Join us to learn how to get the Sphero robot ball rolling in your classroom!

Ozobot Basics

Join us to code with colors! Ozobot's Evo is a robot that can operate with color or block coding.  This tiny but mighty robot packs a lot of power with serveral sensors and communitcation options.  Come join us, you won't want to miss this one!
