Barobo and the UC Davis C-STEM Center provide professional development sessions for teachers and administrators at school districts that choose to use the Mathematics with Robotics, CS with Robotics, Engineering Design with Robotics, Robotics Camps, and/or Robotics-Math Camps curricula. Sessions can be arranged to fit a district's needs and schedule, and follow-up sessions can be arranged as well.

 

The sessions cover an introduction to the RoboBlocky integrated learning environment and K-12 curriculum, its use with virtual and hardware robots, and its Learning Management System (LMS). Topics include:

  • Enhancing Math, CS, and STEAM education using robots and the RoboBlocky Prime Curriculum on Mathematics with Robotics and CS/STEAM with Robotics to stimulate students’ creativity and imagination

  • Using the Learning Management System in RoboBlocky to manage classes, add student accounts, assign homework, grade student submitted homework, and provide feedback, as well as create tests and assessment.

  • Bringing student-friendly robotics and making technologies into distance learning, classrooms, CTE pathways, and after-school programs

  • Programming and controlling both virtual and hardware robots using block-based programming and understanding the connection to C programming

  • Applying coding and robotics activities to subjects such as math, science, engineering, and art

  • Connecting coding and robotics activities to CCSS Math, NGSS, and CS standards

If there are enough participants, sessions can be customized by grade level (e.g., TK-2, 3-6, 7-12). Previous coding or robotics experience is not required.
