Ozobot Classroom to Be Revealed at 2019 ISTE Conference
New STEAM Learning Management System Helps Educators Teach and Measure 21st Century Skills
"At Ozobot, we believe preparing students for success extends beyond STEM to creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and other 21st century, career-ready skills," says Founder and CEO Nader Hamda. "But that comprehensive picture has been hard to measure, until now. We look forward to sharing our new STEAM learning management system with 2019 ISTE Conference attendees."
After being unveiled at ISTE, Ozobot Classroom will launch this fall. Once teachers create an account, they will be guided through training in Ozobot's 2 Ways to Code: on-screen with OzoBlockly visual programming and screen-free with Color Codes. From there, educators can manage students and bots, access standards-aligned lesson recommendations, assign activities and digital badges, and use real-time insights into students' online and offline activity to inform their teaching strategies.
Ozobot's Evo Educator Entry Kit and Evo Classroom Kit, which are compatible with the new Ozobot Classroom, were also selected as finalists for the 2019 SIIA CODiE Awards. The SIIA CODiE Awards recognize the top innovative products and services in the education and business technology industries.
