A Testimonial from Brant Amerman
A Gifted Resource Teacher and Summer supervisor for Young Scholars Camp
Brant Amerman, the Gifted Resource Teacher at Elm Street Elementary wanted to utilize a new technology during the Young Scholars Camp with Rome City Schools this past summer. Students were learning Scratch during camp time and Brant wanted something different after experimenting with Lego Robotics Kits during the school year.
The Young Scholars Camp incorporated Dash & Dot robotics into their technology time and the students were very excited to learn programming through the Wonder Workshop apps. Mr. Amerman said,” the best part was that students could see themselves doing something with computer science, using the robots really increased their comfort level, and they are excited to learn more about computer science.”
“Dash & Dot were very easy to use and to integrate into the camp. We had students engineer bridges and they had to test their bridges by programming Dash to travel over the bridge. My goal for the upcoming school year is to integrate more programming skills and projects incorporating robotics into daily instruction.”
“In the beginning, it is really cool to use robots, but we want to go beyond that by incorporating computer science instruction into all subjects.” Mr. Amerman plans to use Dash & Dot with his students this upcoming school year at Elm Street Elementary. The younger students will learn how to use the apps and learn simple coding principles, and he plans to design opportunities for his older students to think creatively about how to program Dash & Dot to complete projects and challenges.”
We can’t wait to see what comes out of Elm Street Elementary this school year!
