What is Codey Rocky?

Codey Rocky combines hardware and software, allowing children to learn about programming while they play and create. Through the use of mBlock software, children map every move made by the robot, by assembling a series of building blocks, allowing them to understand each command intuitively.

Children can turn their block-based program into Python code.

In conjunction with Codey Rocky, mBlock software allows children to get to grips with artificial intelligence (AI), including image and voice recognition, as well as deep learning.

Codey Rocky comes with learning materials, examples and tutorials to support children in their learning every step of the way.

Pedagogy

Certified by Education Alliance Finland

EAF Evaluation is an academically-backed approach to evaluating the pedagogical design of a product. EAF evaluators assess the product using criteria that covers the most essential pedagogical aspects in the learning experience.
Passive
Active
The app provides nice examples on how to get started with the Codey Rocky robot. mBlock 5 works as an ideal supplement to the mBlock app. Whereas the mBlock app provides the more restricted learning experience, mBlock 5 works as an open environment for making any kinds of creative projects.
Rehearse
Construct
The user is guided nicely to make choices based on what has been learned. With the mBlock 5 learning experience is fully based on creative problem solving which leads to building deeper understanding.
Linear
Non-linear/Creative
Thanks to the gamification in the Makeblock app, the solution provides accurately predictable learning outcomes. Progress can also be scheduled very accurately and learning progress is directly comparable between users which is practical especially in the classroom use as the teacher can easily follow the progress. With mBlock 5 users have full autonomy and freedom to explore tools and content.
Individual
Collaborative
The solution allows the learner to make all the decisions individually, but face-to-face interaction can be part of the learning experience.
