Kids with special needs share a passion for technology
There is no doubt that innovative tools, and especially technology and robotics, can make a
huge difference for children with special needs. This is especially true for students with autism,
who often show incredible skills when it comes to coding and robotics.
Teach coding with KUBO, it is easy and fun!
KUBO has many strengths, but the most important factor is that it’s easy to use both for the
students and, more importantly, for teachers. This is crucial because many teachers
feel insecure when it comes to using new technology in their teaching. Part of my role is to
support teachers to use technology in the classroom.
Benefits of KUBO
KUBO is easy because you just need to plug the head in and you’re good to go. There is no
need for a computer or iPad, and you don’t need to have any prior experience in coding.
With Kubo, kids don’t need any prior understanding of coding language because the simple
puzzle pieces present the language in a very physical and literal way. Students are able to work
for longer periods without any breaks. They are able to work in pairs and on their own.
How much training do you need before you can use KUBO with students?
It depends on your experience with coding. If you are a newcomer, no more than 40 minutes to
unpack, set up, and go through the video tutorials and quick start guide. But if you have
knowledge about coding, it can be just minutes!
Once you have grasped the basics, you can explore the Coding License, which provides a whole
series of lesson plans and activities for you to use in your classroom.

best way to teach kids.
