Learning Together in Dundee
Background/
Rationale
The background for this ICT Project was to find innovative ways
in which to integrate ICT into the classroom.
The BeeBot is an exciting new programmable floor robot, it’s
simple and child friendly layout is a perfect starting point for
teaching control, directional language and programming to young
children but I also wanted to support learning across the
curriculum.
Using BeeBots are a fun way to support learning as I had already
worked with these within the Primary 1 classroom.
I decided to create a box which would incorporate many aspects
of the curriculum but the context would be the story “We’re
Going On A Bear Hunt” and using the BeeBot as the tool for
delivering the intended learning.
It is also hoped to use this to promote transition from nursery
then into school through all stages, children bringing their
learning with them through school.

Project
The Project involved creating a box that’s main context was a
story. It was decided to begin with “We’re Going On A Bear
Hunt”. I began by collecting as many resources as possible. I
did this by sourcing the internet and found many resources
for use across the curriculum.
Within the box there is a pen drive with many resources to be
used within the classroom. These include activities to promote
reading, writing, literacy, maths, ICT, PE, PSED. These also
included interactive white board activities.
These are a list of resources that were created for the Box.

Impact
Learning Together in Dundee
Impact
*Feedback from Staff has found that using the BeeBot
has proved extremely beneficial when working with
control and modelling.
*Using the Story Box has given a context and they have
seen how they can use the BeeBot and take it in other
directions e.g. using it with different stories, developing
different characters for the BeeBot.
*The different activities in the box e.g. number line and
sequence cards have supported learning across the
curriculum.
*Children will now have opportunities to explore learned
skills throughout each stage of school.
