Getting the Most Out of Roamer
You can start using Roamer at a simple, intuitive level. But the more you learn about it, the more you realise its great potential as an educational tool. You could follow a crash course and systematically learn all there is to know about the product and its use. Alternatively, you can approach training as a natural process, where your skill gradually increases with its practical use in the classroom. The training site supports a range of different approaches.
|On the Job and Just in Time Training|
Training is embedded into the Roamer Activities. Whether you have attended a training course, or not, the point where you most need help is during the preparation of lessons or even during a lesson. Most of the Training resources are broken into small packages, which take one or two minutes to absorb. Development of your Roamer will be gradual and practical.
You can choose Roamer activities according to your experience and confidence on using the robot. Technically simple activities does not mean educationally easy. Starting with simple activities gradually builds teacher expertise.
