Play and Learn with Technology
There are benefits to using technology both for play and learning. Technology can help with creativity, problem solving, visual thinking and make learning fun. Creating the right kind of technology activities can support the development of students' learning and skills, including fine motor skills, letter/ number/ shape/ color recognition, eye-hand coordination, reading, writing, planning, and problem solving. On Friday, March 24 2023 join Model Schools staff for Play and Learn. We will start the day by learning coding and how it could be incorporated into your lessons. We will then take our coding and combine it with robotics to drive Spheroes though some fun and challenging activities that you can use with your students in the classroom. Finally we will take the coding and robotics with the Lego Spike Prime kits to create a robot and code it through various missions. There will be time at the end to create a lesson using one of the tools above you could take back and use with your students.
