ISTE Standards: For Students:
Empowered Learner
  • Students articulate and set personal learning goals, develop strategies leveraging technology to achieve them and reflect on the learning process itself to improve learning outcomes.
Computational Thinker
  • Students break problems into component parts, extract key information, and develop descriptive models to understand complex systems or facilitate problem-solving.
  • Students understand how automation works and use algorithmic thinking to develop a sequence of steps to create and test automated solutions.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

1. To introduce the new hands-on coding robot sets from matatalab which is designed for PreK to Grade5. This is to develop computational thinking skills and 21st-century skills and make coding accessible for the younger ones.
2. To share the successful classroom experience in Finland kindergarten and USA kindergarten, including their engaging and fun lesson plans integrating matatalab coding robot sets into the cross-curricular subjects.
