EdTech Digest: Ba-Boom! EdTech!

Mark Gura, from EdTech Digest, came by to get a first hand look at KIBO during the ISTE Conference. He included his visit to our booth in the ISTE EdTech Roundup! He states, “I found myself marveling at how much these kits allow students to do using a ‘screen free’ learning environment.”

He also mentions:

“Kinderlab’s KIBO Robotics kinderlabrobotics.com impressed me as offering serious coding through materials that are so accessible and appealing to young students. I very much appreciate that KIBO is scaling up its robotics materials in complexity of function. Originally intended for young students who need very simple materials, KIBO is now expanding programmability to include ways to use sub-routines. As students mature and become more proficient at coding concepts and skills, KIBO will stay relevant and challenging for them. Supporting students to grow and reach without having to leave the comfort of a body of materials that they have become comfortable with (and love, I would expect) I think is a great plus in what KIBO is doing. I found myself marveling at how much these kits allow students to do using a ‘screen free’ learning environment. KIBO offers kids building block-like materials they can manipulate using visual cues, arranging them into robotic programs that model and illustrate coding in ways guaranteed to make great sense to young students who are now learning in an ever more sophisticated environment.”
