Collaboration thru Pro-Bot Programming
Dale Street School
Students use Pro-Bots for collaborative problem-solving
The Medfield Coalition for Public Education enabled Dale Street School in Medfield, MA to deploy 50 Pro-Bots in Grades 4 and 5. Teachers Marissa Foley and Kerry Cowell developed lesson plans to encourage collaborative learning and joint problem-solving with Pro-Bots.

The teachers document their experience on Dale Street Pro-Bot Pilot, a terrific blog featuring photos, videos, and students' work, with learning objectives, successes, and challenges. It is an inspiring and useful resource for all teachers using Pro-Bots.
