PD EDISON – FULL

November 6 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Edison

Edison is a versatile bot that opens up students’ imagination. Students can make use of Edison’s Lego-compatible pegs and a handful of sensors to solve a variety of problems. Edison can respond to barcodes to perform various predefined tasks or be programmed using a computer using one of a few different languages. We focus on using EdScratch, a block-based programming language that looks and feels like Scratch, but is customized for Edison.

This 1/2 day professional development activity is designed for Grade 5-6 classroom teachers. The opportunity is open only to teachers of the Saskatoon Public School Division, Greater Saskatoon Catholic School Division, Prairie Spirit School Division, and Saskatoon Tribal Council.

During the in-service classroom kits and curricular activities will be introduced to teachers for use in their classrooms. Kits will then be made available to teachers who have received this training.
