“I have to say, they are the perfect solution for me. I teach pre-service teachers. In our footprint, schools are low on funding, and low on expertise. I have funded myself, and played with a variety of robots for lower primary, including some quite expensive models. Without a doubt Edison is most user-friendly, versatile and of course cost-effective”
- Wendy Fasso, Central Queensland University, Australia
“I've been running camps here in Ireland using Edison robots and the children are delighted with the robots and are really enjoying playing with them. They are amazed with what the robots can do and love designing their own programs. It's great to see how imaginative they are.”
- Sinéad Diggin, Ireland
“I have been so thrilled watching my students come up with creative ways to work with the two Edisons we have. They are in the process of creating a video to share with our parent community to convince them this is a great way to get students engaged in this type of technology.”
- Yolanda Gonzales, Boise school District, USA
“In the classrooms, the robots are gradually filtering through all classes. All teachers have been hugely impressed by the enjoyment the students experience as well as the higher order thinking skills that are used to solve challenges that students encounter with the Edison robots.”
- Julia Creasy, Coolbinia Primary School, Australia
“I am very impressed with the Edison and how they have engaged the students in my class.”
- Andrew P., Primary Teacher, Australia
Ideally, you want a 1:1 student-to-device ratio, but that doesn’t mean students should only ever work on their own when learning to code. Individual coding, pair programming and group projects all have their place.
Done right, pair programming can lead to great educational outcomes for students that reach far beyond the ability to write code. Learn what pair programming is and the top 5 reasons to give it a try.
Whether it’s getting your principal, a department head or even the Department of Education on board, you have a much better shot at getting your plans off the ground with backing and buy-in from others. Here are five tips to help you gather the support you need to make your STEM program dreams come true.
