Pai Technology, providers of engaging STEAM products using augmented reality for PreK-6 classrooms, announced at the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference the debut of Augie, a robot that pairs coding with augmented reality. Augie gives students the opportunity to learn code through constructive, hands-on classroom play.
Designed for early childhood and elementary grade students, Augie blends research from child development experts with the latest technology. With Augie, students discover how to code by controlling a range of the robot’s movements, and can use the video function to record their own sounds and movies.
Each level of Augie is accompanied by video animation. Students first learn about the programming task and then follow its guidance to write a programming sequence. By executing the right commands, students succeed and move on to the next level. In addition, students have the option to enter the free play-programming screen. Here, students can use what they learned in the classroom to write their own sequence and unlock more advanced programming language.
