Uygi Var
27:55
Thanks
Mohammed kazim

Can An Star wars droid activity kit be released?

Mohammed we don’t work directly with Star Wars brand anymore. However if you buy a droid you can still program it within the Sphero Edu app!
Mohammed kazim
33:11
Ok,Thank you
Greg - Sphero
33:39
Jane - You can check out our warranty details here. https://sphero.com/search?type=product&q=NOT+tag%3A__gift+AND+warranty*
Uygi Var

Children need to fail in order to learn. Fail forward 🙌🏻
Greg - Sphero
35:06
Hi Uygi - Yes, the Mini will accept firmware updates.
Uygi Var

Thanks!
Sphero

Welcome, Kendall!
Kendall Lloyd
36:23
Sorry Im late to the party. I am Kendall from Charleston, SC. I am a instructional tech coach so I got pulled to go into a classroom for a few minutes. :)
Carol Murray
37:23
Are there any opportunities for schools to loan kit in the first instance before an expensive outlay?
Jackie Tingen
37:47
our PE teacher is looking on how to incorporate STEM using sphero into her gym classes
Sphero
38:50
@Jackie - check out this blog! We have two Sphero Heroes who are PE Teachers that helped write this one! https://sphero.com/blogs/news/stem-in-physical-education
Jackie Tingen
39:26
Thank you!! She is also on this call with me
Karl McCormack
40:56
Hi is anyone here from Higher Education. I am looking at using Sphero (Bolts, mini, Ollies) in our Business School ideas would be great. Using currently in Accounting and Business Management
Michele Pikunic
41:33
Will this be available in Australia?
Michelle Acaley
42:00
Michele - Yes, it is available worldwide.
Michele Pikunic
43:20
Great, thanks.
Emma Oxley-Simpson
44:08
Do we have to buy the Sphero Sport package in order to gain access to the activities in the app?
Jessica Jasper
44:39
I coordinate coding clubs in my school district, about 1,200 students participate. How long do the Sport activities last, thinking og longevity of program.
Michelle Acaley
45:11
Emma - there are soccer and rugby activities already in the app! You just wouldn’t have the mat, but you could maybe create it on your own or go outside and play!
Laura McGarva
45:37
Will the learning objectives of lessons be specific for each area? E.g we use Curriculum for Excellence outcomes in Scotland and it would be great if this was reflected.
Emma Oxley-Simpson
45:44
Yay! Thank you Michelle xx
Michelle Acaley
45:47
Jessica - there are over unique 20 activities, however once you complete the program you can always play the coding games on the mat.
Greg - Sphero
46:23
Hi Art - Currently Sphero Sports is sold as a bundle, but you can access thousands of lessons at edu.sphero.com.
Michelle Acaley
46:24
Laura - we haven’t specifically called out global standards, however from experience the lessons do cover the computing standards in scotland
Jackie Tingen
46:33
is there a way to purchase the football code map without buying the entire kit?
Brianne O'Connell
47:10
If I had learned coding this way, I probably would have had a different career path.
Chris Meehan
47:56
Agree with Brianne! This is so cool!
Mohammed kazim
48:12
Can Sphero 2.0 and RVR Receive updates ?
Melissa Willcox
48:22
These coding mats are so cool!
Imani Malaika-Mehta
48:30
Good to know that pre-readers can learn with this!
Karen Reiber
48:49
Is this a reversible mat--another sport on back like the original mat?
Michele Pikunic
49:33
Love the engagement shown in the photos
Rachael Blomquist
49:45
Do the activities for the sports require the mat or can they work just on a hard surface with targets (tape)?
Carol Murray
49:51
Shame it is Harlequins :-(
Sphero
49:51
@Elena - a recording link will be emailed after the live session ends.
Katrina Madok
50:18
I can see many curriculum tie ins to encourage teachers and motivate students!
Katrina Madok
51:10
I can see our afterschool programs use this!
Laurie Elwick
51:20
This will be amazing to use in math and science classes too
Michele Pikunic
51:24
@Katrina, agree as well as teamwork, collaboration, communication and grit.
Katrina Madok
51:40
Yes!
Michele Pikunic
52:25
Sphero Olympics!!!
Laurie Elwick
52:34
I would love to see the Denver Broncos sponsoring schools in our state. Great way to advertise for their company and invest in education. Love the Sphero Olympics
Michele Pikunic
54:12
Great way to make real world connections as well.
Emma Oxley-Simpson
57:20
Reflection is key!
Rachael Blomquist
57:50
Can local schools sponsor - is there a fee?
Scarlett Kibler
57:55
This is a great way to encourage an interest in STEM and rugby in the US!
Brianne O'Connell
58:05
Definitely.
Michele Pikunic
58:27
Hard fun is the best learning!
Michelle Acaley
01:02:01
Chris - Create classes using our class code and have students submit their programs.
Katrina Madok
01:02:02
Agree! My gifted students are now joining in on this session and they love what they see!
Michelle Acaley
01:02:25
Chris - also have them be exact and soon they’ll learn its hard to be exact while driving.
Mohammed kazim
01:02:54
Thank you for these webinars and robots. It can actually help a lot for teachers in school as the students can learn with fun and gain some knowledge. But a lot of schools do not use this yet. It would be incredible to use your robots in classes to help educators like us thank you a lot.
Susan Colvin
01:03:12
This was extremely helpful! Thank you so much!
Laurie Elwick
01:03:31
So excited how Sphero continues to grow and support educators.

Thank you! My students are so impressed!
Warren Hudson
01:05:14
Loved this gents - great to see the images with kids who are clearly very engaged. Sport is a great vehicle to get kids to start coding.
Kendall Lloyd
01:05:21
This was absolutely amazing. I am trying to help our PE Coach to incorporate technology...what an awesome way! Things that make you go...Why didn't I think of this sooner. hahha
Michelle Acaley
01:05:38
Holly - we’ll send out a recording
Michele Pikunic
01:05:42
