Webinar – Storytelling with KIBO: Meeting Early Literacy Milestones with Robotics
June 30, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us on June 30th at 2pm (EST) for the webinar – Storytelling with KIBO: Meeting Early Literacy Milestones with Robotics
With the frame of storytelling, early childhood STEAM education can support the development of critical early literacy skills: sequencing stories, understanding character and plot, and self-expression. The KIBO robot is a perfect vehicle for storytelling for young children, with its screen-free, hands-on coding and arts integration.
Hear from leaders in the field of literacy-based STEAM education, who will share research in robotics and literacy, offer practical experiences implementing these programs, and examples of how KIBO provides a foundation for literacy education through robotics, coding, and STEAM.
