    Public discussion Created by Ngā Kiriahi
    Kidbots are a great way to learn new concepts around Computational thinking such as step-by-step instructions (algorithms), decomposition and debugging. 
     
    Once these ideas have been introduced, how could you use the Kidbots activity in other learning areas? What kinds of 'problems/issues' might be posed so that students can work through authentic problem-solving tasks? What have you tried already and how did it go?
