The Root Robot
The root robot is a device that helps introduce children to
coding. It's compatible with iPads, iPhones, and Android devices. It interacts
with the children using a touch screen and assists with coding in several
different ways. This technology specifically helps younger children with progressive programming. This device moves horizontally and vertically. One
super cool thing about this device is that it can scale whiteboards so children
can create programs for it to climb. This device is engaging because of the unlimited movements that it offers. Since this program can be used with tablets it easily accommodates children with exceptionalities. (8 early education technology tools: STEM in Kindergarten. 2023)

Adaptive Learning Tools
 Adaptive learning tools create an algorithm that can adjust the difficulty of the content based on the students’ strengths and weaknesses. These are two
different adaptive learning tools, DreamBox and Aleks. Using these formats can provide individual learning experiences for all students. These are simple for teachers to develop and students to engage in. (Staff, T. 2023)
