As indicated in an earlier post (see January 11, 2017, "Coding in Third Grade"), VVE students can now use ROBOTS to practice coding! As part of our hAPPy Friday series, Ed Tech Debbie Smith shares about one of the apps that works with our Dash robots -- Wonder App. See her blog post here and check out more lesson ideas here.
Our own VVE fourth graders learned to code the Dash robots using Blockly (another app by the same company). They explored the puzzles to learn how the different coding blocks worked and then had opportunity to create some of their own simple codes.
Students then shared their feedback about coding using our Showbie app. It was a great way to gather a little formative assessment feedback!
