In March of 2021, the American Rescue Plan set aside close to $130 billion in K-12 education funding with a wide range of allowable uses, including addressing learning loss as a result of COVID-19. As those funds reach school districts, many administrators face tough decisions about how to prioritize their spending.
With an Ozobot STEAM program, you can spend ESSER funds wisely, balancing short-term and long-term goals and student needs. In the short term, address learning loss in math, ELA, and science with Ozobot’s content-integrated, standards-aligned lessons. In the long term, ensure your students are future ready and gaining critical 21st century skills that can prepare them even for the jobs that don’t exist yet.
But don’t take our word for it. Take it from Marcy Richards, Program Director of the Anchorage School District 21st Century Learning Center:
“In our philosophy–and this speaks to the curriculum Ozobot provides as well–we view robotics and coding as tools for lots of different academic interventions. Just because it’s a robot doesn’t mean that it can’t teach geography, math, art, or ELA. The robot is an engaging tool that students love, and you can use it to teach anything.”
Ken Kaplan, a Special Educator at Byram Hills Central School District says:
“Students of all abilities and all learning styles can benefit […] from the utilization of Ozobots, whether they have a strong foundation in coding, or [not.]”
