International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE)
ISTE - (7) Innovative Designer - 7c: Students contribute constructively to project teams, assuming various roles and responsibilities to work effectively toward a common goal.
How Standard is Achieved: In each Lab of the Unit, students complete the Robotic Roles and Routines Checklist to identify their various roles and follow those parameters to work effectively toward creating a functional build. Students also work with their project teams to complete activities outlined in the Play sections of each Lab. At the end of each Lab in the Share section, students will reflect on their effectiveness as a team and their ability to collaborate.
