Title / Description
Learn Anywhere Lessons for Math
In our second Learn Anywhere Lesson webinar, Ozobot lesson creators Melissa, Jen, and Natalie walked us through our lessons and the remote assignment process to get your students hands-on with math—from school, home, or a hybrid of both.
Lessons we covered in this webinar:
- 2GR: What’s My Value?
- 3GR: Mix It Up Multiplication
- 4GR: Division Maze
- 5GR: Number Randomizer
About the Learn Anywhere Lesson Series: We’ve been hard at work on our new Hybrid 1:1 Program to help shoulder some of the burdens our educators are facing, whether your school is fully remote, learning in-person, or a hybrid of both! We’ve created remote-friendly, standards-aligned lessons for core subjects and allows students to learn ELA, Math, and more without sacrificing STEAM learning!
New Webinar Series | Learn Anywhere Lessons: Weeks 1-4 (Intro to Ozobot)
We know that educators have been overwhelmed by the uncertainty of this back-to-school season. That’s why we’ve been hard at work on our new Hybrid 1:1 Program to help shoulder some of the burden. Ozobot’s 1:1 Program includes weekly remote-friendly, standards-aligned lessons for core subjects and allow students to learn ELA, Math, and more without sacrificing STEAM learning. Whether your school is fully remote, learning in-person, or a hybrid of both this Fall and beyond, these flexible lessons will help save you time!
Our lessons for weeks 1-4 are in, and the lesson creator, Melissa Toohey from our Education Team, walked us through new remote-friendly format (including instructional videos for self-guided learning and Google Classroom integration) and the first set of lessons (introducing students to coding with Ozobot).
Supporting Equitable Distance Learning and Special Needs with Ozobot
As schools work to create an equitable back-to-school plan for all students, the 7.1 million students in U.S. public schools who receive special education services* are top-of-mind.
Ozobot Certified Educator and New York City STEAM Teacher, Frances Amato Dominguez, joined Ozobot’s Education Technology & Adoption Specialist, Melissa Toohey, for this SPED-focused webinar. She shared how she uses Ozobot to help her special education students thrive both in-person and from a distance.
Plus, hear how the Ozobot team is helping districts prepare for an uncertain back-to-school landscape with Google Classroom integration and remote-friendly video lessons for hands-on learning that will be rolled out regularly throughout the fall.
Building Social Emotional Learning and Skills with Ozobot
Learn how to incorporate some Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) into your classroom using Ozobot! SEL is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. SEL can (and should!) be more than just a 30-minute lesson.
In this webinar, Ozobot Certified Educator, Jessie Erickson, shared about incorporating the excitement of Ozobot into an SEL lesson to intentionally cultivate a caring, participatory, and equitable learning environment that actively involves all students contributes to their social, emotional, and academic growth.
Programming a Story’s Literary Elements with Evo
This webinar, co-hosted by Ozobot Certified Educator Sheila Slawiak, and Christopher Plasse, melds literary analysis with two types of programming seamlessly so teachers can facilitate (project based) collaborative projects that are robust in nature, accommodate heterogeneous teams, and allow students to share their super powers while sharing “what they know” with each other, then presenting their project with teachers, parents, and their community.
What We Learned Going 1:1 with Ozobot
When school closures in Hong Kong took effect, one school gifted each student an Ozobot to engage them with coding & STEAM from home.
Our very special guests, Adam Hill, Frederick Yue, and Ryan Krakofsky, shared about their experience with being a newly 1:1 robotics school and how it has prepared their school for a virtual learning environment. In this webinar, they shared the challenges they’ve given students and tips for engaging students remotely with Ozobot.
Differentiated & Individualized Multiple Choice with Ozobot
Do you want to make your multiple choice questions a unique “Ozo-some” experience for your students? Are you looking for opportunities to integrate coding while students practice content?
In this webinar, Ozobot Certified Educators Lisa Richardson & Laura Newell showed us some prepared options for using Color Codes and Ozoblockly to enrich any multiple choice question. Multiple choice format is often looked at as the basic form of assessment, but doing it with Ozobot can make it differentiated and an individualized learning experience all at once!
How to Host a Virtual STEAM Night
School closures have affected a great deal for teachers—including the inability to host STEM/STEAM nights with students and their families. Since involving family in student exploration of STEAM activities can help empower kids to pursue opportunities in STEM, we want to help you host a STEAM Night virtually!
Ozobot Certified Educator, Kristy Braaksma joined us to share tips and activities for making your virtual STEM Night a success.
No-Bots-Needed Activities to Teach Coding Remotely Part III: OzoTown
We wrapped up our no-bots-needed activities series with the recently-launched, long-awaited OzoTown!
In this webinar, our Education Technology and Adoption Specialist, Melissa, trained attendees on how to complete OzoTown and use it as a resource for teaching students to code remotely. As with all OzoBlockly games (ShapeTracer 1, ShapeTracer 2), this activity uses a virtual bot simulator so you can create and execute programs with or without the need for a physical bot!
