Description

Description

This class focuses on helping teachers becoming familiar with the design thinking process and the Autodesk® VEX® Robotics Curriculum and how they are used in the classroom. The goal of the class is to help teachers take the role of "guide on the side" and to become comfortable with knowing the learning and teaching the resources that are available in the Digital STEAM Workshop without becoming a software expert. History has proven that focusing on the picks and clicks of one specific software program will not help teachers feel comfortable in exploring technologies new to them, such as our media and entertainment products, and will overwhelm teachers new to technology, leaving them confused and disengaged. Find out how to use this interactive website to teach robotics.
