For you schools out there using lots-o’-bots in the classroom, we developed some special features to make your lives easier:

  • Create an activity and assign it to your class, or share it publicly with the community

  • Disable sounds when dragging blocks to improve classroom focus. Go to Home>Settings>Canvas Sounds option

Sphero Edu Lessons + Activities

We at Sphero are constantly working on engaging, educational content intended for use in the classroom. Check out what we, and our community, have created to leverage the full potential of our Sphero Edu platform and robots: https://edu.sphero.com/cwists/category.

Our Sphero-created Draw and Blocks intros and activities are a great place to start. Once students have an understanding of the concepts, we recommend moving into specific activities geared towards specific curriculum. If you have a class set up, assign activities to your students that complement and enrich your lesson plans.
