Teacher Talk: Teaching Plot and Character through Creative Robotics

 
Teacher Talk: Teaching Plot and Character through Creative Robotics

Join this teacher and librarian panel discussion to explore how we can teach ELA deeply using creative robotics. Creative robotics with the Hummingbird Kit can be a tool for use in the classroom akin to essay writing, mind-mapping, or student presentations. See how teachers have taught things like Robot Shakespeare, Robot Poetry, and Creative Writing using Hummingbird. We will showcase the projects and learning from Tuesday’s Robot Shakespeare webinar with students, and discuss pedagogy and practical teaching tips.

The Lake County Regional Office of Education will provide 1 PDH for Illinois educators who would like to receive professional development hours towards their license.  An online evaluation will be shared at the end of the webinar and those who are interested can request their credit.  Evaluation must be completed by Friday, July 10, 2020. Please visit https://www.lake.k12.il.us/professional-learning for upcoming professional development including STEM and coding opportunities for the 20-21 school year with Hummingbird Robots.
