How I Use It
I used the Path program to demonstrate to teachers in my school how to use Dash the robot and Path the app to learn patterns. Using the Path app allows teachers and students to create a pattern, and Dash will act out the pattern making the experience SO much fun.
My Take
Coding with younger students (pre-k through first) can be intimidating to teachers. Demonstrating the ease of use of this app with Dash the robot eliminated their fears. The Path app makes coding easy and fun, while Dash's actions take learning to the next level of excitement.
