Good timing, as we start to trial new ideas for both Computational Thinking and Designing and Developing Digital outcomes in the new Digital Technologies and Hangarau Matihiko curricula.

Question: Which robots? Emily Bagrie is looking for some advice about which robots in class - should they be looking at purchasing and using Beebots, Edsions and Spheros? Any advice welcome please.
