Why am I Robot Man?
I believe that most teachers want to see their students enjoy school.
I believe students love new technologies and thrive when given a chance to use it creatively.
I believe school should be fun. When it is fun, learning takes place.
I believe I get students to be genuinely excited about learning.
I believe what I do is excellent for relationships and self esteem. It can lead to successes in other areas of school life.
I believe coding and robotics encourages creativity and inspires students to show initiative.
I believe coding and robotics teach kids to persevere, because no-one ever gets their code or their robot perfect the first time.
I believe coding and robotics helps students become resilient. It encourages good sportsmanship.
Some of the kids I teach shine brightest when they are making or coding a robot. It might be the only thing they are good at; but they instantly earn the respect of everyone around them.
Things learnt while playing with robots, can last a lifetime.
