KinderLab Robotics offers different opportunities for professional development. These hands-on experiences target the different needs of schools and early childhood centers. From one-hour web conferences to two-day on-site workshops, KinderLab will work with you to hand-craft the best suited program for your institution.
Our training is aimed at educators, program coordinators and technology specialists who work with young children 4 to 7 years old in diverse formal and informal educational settings, such as school, pre-schools, day cares, libraries, museums, after school programs, summer camps, etc. The hands-on training provides an in-depth understanding of how to use KIBO robotics in a developmentally appropriate way with young children and how to integrate the different teaching materials.
KIBO Training Options
KinderLab Robotics offers custom professional development to fit your needs, either onsite or remotely.
On-Site Workshops: We can work with your school, organization, or district to provide an on-site training workshop to fit your specific needs. The cost of the workshop depends on the length of training, number of trainers, and number of participants; and travel costs (airfare, lodging, etc.). We can also provide a “train the trainer” workshop to empower your district’s experts to train other teachers. Please contact our training team to discuss your particular needs and we can prepare a quote.
Web-Based Training: $100. We offer a regular schedule of live, interactive web-based training workshops. These are an ideal format to provide a quick, effective introduction to teaching with KIBO. Purchase access to a KIBO web training via our web-store.
