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…

Ozobot

Ozobot can be used in two different ways. The first is as a line-tracking robot that responds to black, red, blue, and green colour codes to perform a variety of moves like turning, switching paths, and doing spins. Ozobot can also be programmed using a tiered block-based programming language that is similar to Scratch. Ozo can follow paths, sense obstacles, play a song, and put on a light show.  This 1/2 day professional development activity is designed for Grade 3-4…
