UC Davis Center for Integrated Computing and STEM Education (C-STEM) --- Research and Outreach

Building Capacity for Distance Learning with RoboBlockly and Online Professional Development (April 17 10:00am-11:30am)

This unique session will guide K-12 teachers, district coordinators, and district professional development trainers through the process of facilitating their own Online Professional Development session to support educators that are new to C-STEM and RoboBlockly. RoboBlockly is uniquely ideal for distance learning due to its deep integration with common core math standards, computer science, and hands-on robotics. Benefits to distance learning with RoboBlockly include:

  • Over 1,000 ready-to-go activities to choose from
  • Making learning fun with hands-on, interactive coding, robotics, and math activities
  • An intuitive classroom management portal
  • High level of flexibility and numerous features including recent new features
  • RoboBlockly provides a guided, interactive alternative to traditional classroom learning.
  • Can be done entirely through any modern web browser. 
  • Using coding for art, music, and animations.
  • Discovering connections between coding, robotics, art, and math.

We will provide resources for delivering a successful online PD that engages participants and inspires them to use RoboBlockly to conduct distance learning including:

  • PowerPoint
  • PD outline
  • Strategies
  • Guidelines

Participants of this session are encouraged to coordinate further professional development sessions within their school or district to help guide others towards getting started with RoboBlockly and C-STEM. C-STEM will continue to support participants as they conduct their own PD sessions through consultations, technical support, and development as needed.
