Cubelets are a highly engaging tool—and I mean highly engaging! Teachers around the world ask for tips on managing a classroom full of students who are completely engrossed and inspired by playing with Cubelets. What a great problem to have!
The first piece of advice to you is: embrace the chaos
. Cubelets are a tool that inspires rapid iteration. It is normal and good for students to quickly design and revise their constructions – even breaking off into unplanned tangents while they do. To manage this kind of classroom, settle into it and get your hands dirty. Walk around from group to group and ask them questions
- What are you building?
- Tell me about this design.
- What is challenging you right now?
- What else could this robot construction be used for?
- Why did you choose to put this Cubelet here?
