How I Use It
I think this will be an excellent resource in the Robotics Curriculum. Students can see the many different types of robots. The teacher could assign a robot to research, or introduce a different robot each day. I can see discussing what robots can do and then showing the student an actual robot that does that task. I think this is an impressive resource.
My Take
This isn't really a teaching tool, but rather a tool for teaching. I am so excited to add it to the curriculum. I am going to show one robot a day as a bell starter and have students write what they think the robot does and then show them what it does. I will edit this review after I use it.
