We were inspired when the pandemic hit and we had to move to virtual learning. It has been a year we started doing virtual learning. Virtual learning can be challenging and painful. It is not easy to pay attention for a long time.
What it does
Our project is called the Ed Bot. It helps kids learn school skills in a fun way. It has a menu with links to different games that help with different skills, e.g. literacy skills, music.
How we built it
We built the project using Scratch. We created a menu with links to subprojects that represent different games. Ideally, there will be links to different skills and grade levels. We have only created a prototype with a few games for demonstration.
Challenges we ran into
We did not have enough time to create many games. It was not easy to detect and fix bugs. It was also sometimes frustrating to work in a team where there were disagreements.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Haylie: I was proud we pushed ourselves to the limits and tried new things Layne: I was proud of how the literacy flash cards game turned out. Sean: I explored and learned new Scratch blocks and extensions to make my project.
What we learned
We learned how to work in a team when there are disagreements. As you can imagine, there are always disagreements when you are working with your family. It turned out disagreements helped make our project better. We also learned new Scratch blocks and extensions, and other coding skills and problem-solving skills.
What's next for Ed Bot
We will let our younger cousins and neighbors test out our prototype. We will improve the prototype based on their feedback. We will work on adding more games to the menu.
