Photon is designed for learning at school, where students develop their robots by solving tasks and experiments. All tasks and experiments are based on a story in which users help Photon to explore our world.
Photon Magic Bridge is an application that allows to operate with up to eight Photons from each computer in the classroom and integrate with an interactive whiteboard.
Photon can be programmed using several coding apps.
When creating a great product for students, every detail matters.
In this hands-on course, you’ll meet Photon, the world’s first robot that will develop and grow with your students. You’ll become familiar with Photon’s capabilities and learn what it takes to make Photon come alive. You’ll identify Photon’s features and characteristics, classroom management procedures, and be able to identify the applications and the magic bridge. By the conclusion of this course, you will have the skills to properly care for Photon.
In this hands-on course, you will learn how to code your Photon with Scratch, a free online coding platform. You will learn how to use Scratch’s block based software to control your Photon. By the completion of this course, you will be able to integrate Scratch coding into your lesson plans.
In this hands-on course, you will examine sample lessons for using Photon in the the content-specific classroom*. You will collaborate with peers to discover how you can integrate Photon into your own classroom. At the completion of this workshop, you will be able to create and test your own lesson with Photon.
*Available for Science, Math, Language Arts, Social Studies and/or Foreign Language.
