Task 7: Visual Programming


Task 7: Option 2

As I’m sure many teachers are familiar with, Ozobots are a great tool to help support lessons and can be used at any year level, suitable for early childhood and K-12.  Ozobots can be incorporated across a range of subject areas, used within the classroom to support learning in mathematics, science, technologies (STEM), as well as English to help with literacy development and skills. They can be used to help students learn coding, such as the demonstration in the below video. They could be used in a classroom activity to program for a mathematics lesson in routes and directions for example.

Ozobots help students learn coding through colour language and colour codes (primarily black, blue, red and green)

Further, below is a short video on the use and integration of Ozobots in an English lesson for year 1.
