RoboKind today announced the advanced release of their District Enterprise robots4STEM® Avatar Version software to provide coding instruction at no cost for students in districts that are experiencing school closures due to the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak.
Designed for students in grades 1-8, robots4STEM® engages beginning and intermediate learners and is aligned to the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) standards for computer science education. Educators can learn more in this video (opens in new tab).
Many district leaders have expressed concerns about students and online safety as they prepare for an extended period of online learning. The first lessons in RoboKind’s robots4STEM® course are focused on digital citizenship and online safety, so districts can rest assured that students begin the course with instruction on how to use technology safely and responsibly.
