Lexington Elementary Technology Integration Specialist, Suzanne Brooks, along with Media Specialist, Susan DuBose, receive $1000 Bright Ideas Grant.  They will use the grant money to organize and setup coding and creating opportunities in the LES Library Makerspace with the collaboration of classroom teachers so the projects have meaning and are anchored in learning. The coding and thinking devices develop students’ critical thinking skills through hands-on learning. Students will use these skills and devices to create, collaborate, and design. This project allows students to experiment, tinker, fail, retry, collaborate and ultimately succeed at a variety of tasks. Students will be able to create and innovate through the Osmo and coding devices. Guided instruction and independent time will allow students to use their past knowledge, creativity and problem-solving skills to create something unique. This process simulates real-world experiences so students are not only innovative thinkers, but also doers. The grant will be used to purchase Osmo devices to use with existing iPad devices, a Bee Bot Codable Robot Learning Station, and Sphero App Enabled Robo Ball.
