Ozobot Classroom Aims to Make STEAM Learning Measurable
Ozobot is launching what it’s calling the first “STEAM learning management system,” Ozobot Classroom.
Ozobot is the maker of robotics kits for classroom settings. The kits are designed to teach coding and offer numerous lessons (more than 150 as of this writing) and educator resources.
Ozobot Classroom will support its existing kits and will, in fact, be free with the purchase of any kit with 12 or more robotis. (It will also be free for those who have already purchased kits.) It includes an educator dashboard with student profiles, the ability to track student data, status updates for the robots (such as battery level), guides and lessons. Student data tracking allows educators to see which students are in need of additional help. Digital badges allow educators to recognize students’ achievements.
Ozobot also launched a lesson sharing tool, with rewards for teachers who submit their lessons.
Ozobot Classroom is expected to be available for the fall semester. It debuted at the ISTE 2019 conference late last month. Further information can be found on Ozobot’s site.
