Computing Club were eager to get their hands on our new, PTA funded, BlueBots. BlueBots look very similar to BeeBots but they have many extra functions – the main one being that you can operate them on an iPad via a bluetooth connection. They are also able to carry out quarter turns and, via the iPad, display a simple code sequence.
Computing Club seemed to relish the opportunity to try them out and we discussed what the potential problems would be when using them in a class environment and how we could overcome them.
We haven’t asked anyone to apply to be a ‘Digital Leader’ yet but some of the children in Computing Club have shown that they have all the necessary skills to rise to the challenge!
