1.7c Global Collaborator: Students use digital tools to broaden their perspectives and enrich their learning by collaborating with others and working effectively in teams locally and globally.
How Standard is Achieved: In Labs 1-5, students must work together with their teammates in order to build the robot, drive the robot to practice the given tasks for the Lab, and to compete in each Lab's competition. They will take on specific responsibilities, such as Builder or Journalist roles during building, or driver during the competition, in order for their team to be successful. Additionally, they must work together throughout the Labs and in the Unit Competition to determine a shared strategy for scoring as many points as possible.
