What is a beebot?
Beebots are a fun way to integrate coding into younger classrooms. They have basic coding buttons giving the bot directions of forwards, backwards, left, right and pause. They are simple to use and a great way to indroduce direction words to the class, teaching left and right.
the beebots can be used throughout the primary curriculum from maths to geography
Using the beebot

I was very excited when I saw we would be working with these beebots as I had never had the chance to do so before. 
I was introduced to Brunars 3 modes of representation. 
These are Enactive, iconic and symbolic.
We started with the iconic and symbolic stages where we learnt the basics of using the Beebot.
This means looking at photos and using related key words. 
Finally, we moved onto enactive representation where we got the chance to use the Beebots.
