International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE)
ISTE - (7) Global Collaborator - 7c: Students contribute constructively to project teams, assuming various roles and responsibilities to work effectively toward a common goal.
How Standard is Achieved: In Lab 1, students work together to add a decoration to their 123 Robot using the Art Ring, to turn their 123 Robot into the "Little Red Robot". They will collaborate in their groups to build a project that drives the 123 Robot from the start to Grandmother’s house.
In Lab 2, students will take turns in their groups moving the Little Red Robot from one starting location to another in order to test the “Drive until object” Coder card. They will then collaborate with their group to create a project where the Little Red Robot scares away the Wolf after it is spotted.
