It’s National Robotics Week and to get everybody in the spirit, we thought we’d share a fun video about how our own robot kit – KIBO – has been used in the Kennedy-Longfellow Elementary School in Cambridge MA.
Sue Cusack is an assistant professor at Lesley University and has been working with Cambridge-area schools to embed learning technologies to early education classrooms.
KIBO has been used in grades K-2 in a variety of different ways. What’s so beneficial about KIBO is that it is easily integrated into existing curricula – and Kennedy-Longfellow took full advantage.
Click play below to see how kindergarteners brought the famous book, ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?’ to life; how first-graders recreated the lifecycles of frogs and butterflies; and how second graders learned about different ways worms move through various environments.
KIBO strengthened students’ knowledge of social studies, science and language arts – and gave new valuable technical skills while having fun and working with their classmates.
