Blocky – DashRobots

I was recently introduced to Blocky - DashRobots. Our amazing guest speaker Naomi Leadbeater, Mini University, Brandon, gave us the opportunity for hands-on learning in the classroom. It was amazing to see what learning and teaching potential this little cute robot can offer.
Blocky - DashRobots is a drag-and-drop visual programming tool. The Dash Robots were specifically designed to introduce students to fundamental programming concepts including:

  • Algorithm Design
  • Command Sequence
  • Control Flow
  • Conditionals
  • Loops
  • Sensor and Events through creative problem solving

Furthermore Blocky will allow users to access javascript enabling higher level coding in senior years.I provided the link for teachers as an inspiration to introduce Blocky in their classrooms. Out-of-the-box innovation
