Robotics and Computational Thinking

The new Digital Technologies curriculum places emphasis on computational thinking skills. These are 21st Century skills which enable students to think of solutions and design systems to meet the needs of others. St James’ is beginning to incorporate robotics into its technology program as part of its teaching of computational thinking.

Some robots we use including:

  • Scratch coding and other similar applications
  • Sphero SPRK
  • Osobot
  • Arduino kits
  • Edison kits
  • B-bots
  • EV-3 Lego Kit
  • Lego WeDO
  • Drones
  • Code and Go Robotic Mouse

Desktop computers and iPads will be used to teach students to code. Coding is another word for computer programing.
