I got some Bee-Bots to use with Preschool and Kindergarten students this year in Computer Class. They are small bee-shaped robots that have four arrow buttons to program the bee to go from one place to the next. They were a great hit with students, so I’m hoping to find more opportunities to use them next year. I got the class bundle that included 5 Bee-Bots. Since I never have more than 5 students, this allowed each young student to independently program and learn control, directional language and programming skills. It is a fairly new product from the the U.K. and there aren’t a ton of on-line resources yet. I might search around and see if some of the Logo resources can be translated to the Bee-Bot.
Update: Just learned about a great blog in Australia called Bee-Bots Downunder in my comments. Thanks Nicole!
I brought one home to practice and Kitty Kelly was not pleased.
