Ozobot Certified Educators

What is it?

Certified Educators (CEs) are teachers, principals and school administrators with extensive knowledge of Ozobot products, lesson plans and teaching resources.

CEs know how to use Ozobots to introduce coding and computer science, and they propose innovative ways to incorporate Ozobot into multi-subject lessons and courses. CEs are also passionate about sharing their knowledge with other educators to improve teaching and learning in the classrooms.
