It is just such a fantastic product. So easy to use straight out of the box and ready to introduce learners as young as aged 4 the concepts of computational thinking and coding. The Scratch like apps are brilliant too.

Allen Tsui found Marty The Robot V2:
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    The children I demonstrated Marty to absolutely loved using Marty and curious to understand and learn how the coloured postcards worked. It was so easy to introduce children as young as aged 4 to the computational thinking skills that they need to become confident digital citizens of the future. The children wanted to work together to create different patterns for Marty to follow.
  • Significantly improves teacher knowledge
    The direct links to the way Marty's app works like Scratch was a wonderful way of demonstrating to colleagues less familiar with block coding of its potential.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Every learner that got to work with Marty from Reception (aged 4) to those in Year 6 (aged 11) were so engaged with working with Marty, there were never any issues with behaviour in the coding and robotics lessons.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Quite simply it enables learners from as young as aged 4 to achieve learning goals that are two years above their age related expectations. Specifically, children in Year 2 were learning to use terms like "quarter turn clockwise" when such terminology would usually be taught in Maths in Year 4.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    As a product, Marty has the potential to reach parts of the curriclulum others only dream of. So many opportunities for making a cross curricular impact on student or learner knowledge.
