Building from yesterday’s hands-on programming with the Ozobots using statitic color codes, this afternoon in the AT&T Classroom the CDC Kindergartners learned to program their Ozobots using flash codes, rapidly changing combinations of colors that are displayed on a digital screen such as a tablet or iPad. The children are programming the flash codes using the OzoDraw tool in the Ozobot iOS app. OzoDraw allows children to select from multiple gameplay modes and draw lines and patterns (flash codes) on a tablet’s screen for the Ozobot to follow. This afternoon the Kindergartners worked in the Free Draw mode that offers a blank canvas which children can use to create and program their own original track for their Ozobot.
The children were excited to share their coding projects by projecting them with the document camera to the presentation screen.
