Do It Yourself video

Here is my final (for now) version of my technology video. It focuses on encouraging my students to experiment with technology, not to be afraid to break it.

Building Better Robots Podcast No 1


Welcome to the first episode of the Building Better Robots podcast. This podcast is designed to supplement my 9th grade robotics class in which we are building and programming Super Cricket Robots with Legos and the Logo programming language. But even if you're not taking the class, you might get some good tips out of it. In this episode I'll be talking about how to get the most out of this podcast and I'll introduce some of the specific topics coming up.

Thanks to Flickr user Brandy Shaun for the Lego photo, Flickr user Steve Kay for the Optimus Prime photo, and the music is brought to you by Elysis Raudenbausch, Breakdown Easy, available on Wikimedia Commons.
