mBot 1.0: ideal to teach coding, but also electronics and physics. It's higly expandable, you can create your sensor and use it within the robot. It's based on Arduino, it's easy to find a lot of expansions that can be built by the students. mBot Ranger: It can be used in an open environment, is robust and can be expanded as mBot 1.0. mBot 2.0: less expandable, but more precise due to the change of motors. It has a lot of sensors on board, can be connected to a wifi network and can send to and receive data from other robots or the network

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
Makeblock robots require active engagement to progress and user actions to extract information. After building the robot, users have multiple ways to learn to code and to solve problems with the robot.
Rehearse
Construct
The product provides the basic information about electronics and coding but after the beginning users are free to use the learned information however they want.
Linear
Non-linear/Creative
Building the robot -phase is well instructed and it is possible to start the usage with a linear game where the user can learn the basic concepts and command of coding. After that, the product provides an unlimited learning process and endless possibilities to program the robot.
Individual
Collaborative
Makeblock allows the learner to make all the decisions individually but provides materials with collaborative activities that can be carried out for example in a classroom context.

Learning goals

Certified by Education Alliance Finland
