It can be used to help children understand what algorithms are and how simple programs can be created and then executed. The Bee-bot enables children to improve their skills in directional language and programming through sequences of forwards, backwards, left and right 90 degree turns.
The Bee-Bot® App makes use of the Bee-Bot® keypad functionality and enables children to improve their skills in directional language and programming through sequences of forwards, backwards, left and right 90 degree turns.
|"My students needed very little direct instruction on how to use the Bee-Bot. What I really like about this Bee-Bot is that the robot remembers the program that the students have already entered so that they can add on to their program and they didn't have to their program over each time. It will remember up to 40 steps!" Read more Emily MacGillivary, 1st grade teacher, Ontario, Canada
"Bee-Bot is a visually attractive, audible easily handle able programmable floor robot which can be used to support the development of skills in a wide range of areas. It allows learners to give a range of instructions from simple to more complex. Pupils with SEN could use it to develop one, two and three stage sequences using a variety of activity mats. It can be used for the development of fine motor skills by using the directional buttons. It can support imaginative play through the use of commercial or school designed covers. It allows learners to demonstrate skills in ways that a traditional approach would not support. A positive ICT resource for Early Years." Sue Woodgate, Head of SSSEN - Buxton Area Education Office
I really like the Bee-Bot programmable toy ... It combines the ease of use of [another product] with an attractive look ... The fact that it beeped after every command was liked and ... its small size meant that it was more practical to use..." Susan Garrett - Wakefield Education Advisory Service
