KIBO Training in Singapore

Over 200 early childhood educators and practitioners from 68 preschools across Singapore participated in a KIBO training to learn how robotics could be integrated in the classroom in a playful developmentally appropriate way. This training was part of the PlayMaker Symposium, led by the Education Team at the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA), which introduced a suite of technology-enabled toys to preschool centers to enrich the learning experience for the children fostering creativity, problem solving and confident learning. During the training educators created, desgined and programmed KIBO robotic animals, and “trained”  them to perform tricks, similar to the ones they be observed at the Singapore Zoo.
