Education Market Advisor: ISTELive 22 Interview
Education Market Advisor (EMA) had a chance to have an in-depth video chat discussion with us at the ISTE Live 22 conference. Jason Innes, our
Director of Curriculum, Training and Product Management was interviewed where he demonstrated KIBO and its value to educators of young children. In this Education Market Advisor Brief, they included the following:
“KinderLab Robotics (Waltham, Massachusetts) is the creator of KIBO, a STEAM robot kit that was developed based on 20 years of children development research, and accompanying teaching materials that help to integrate STEAM elements into the curricula. According to KinderLab Robotics research, young learners (ages 4-7) that use KIBO have shown improved early childhood sequencing abilities, improved computational thinking with concrete tools, and has helped in counteracting gender-based STEM stereotypes. The product has also been shown to positively impact underrepresented groups in STEM.”
