Technology Fluency toy wins my approval: Ozobot

Thanks to my friends Rich and Bob for snagging me an Ozobot at SxSW, I have already watched my kids combine craft with robot programming using it. This is a great example of a technology device that leaves the field open for creativity and exploration- good stuff!

The children here are drawing mazes that the robot follows, then creating color sequences to try and experimentally determine all the color-sequence-codes that the robot understands, and what each does. Yes, you can go to the Internet and download it all. But this is far more interesting and challenging.
