The desktop and tablet-supported software provides an easy-to-use drag and drop programming environment so that pupils can get their robots active very quickly. It includes a series of teaching activities to support computational thinking, life, physical, earth, and space sciences, as well as engineering. Pupils can use a built-in documentation tool to record their projects and keep evidence of their work for assessment if required. Extensive teachers’ notes will help teachers become confident users of WeDo 2.0 themselves.
SOFTWARE AND APPS
Devices are connected to the WeDo 2.0 Smarthub over Bluetooth – so no wires get in the way of the learning here.
The WeDo 2.0 software and app works with Windows 7, 8 & 10, macOS, Chrome OS, iOS and Android. They can be downloaded for free from www.legoeducation.com/downloads and the App Store or Google Play Store.
Please check the system requirements to ensure your devices are compatible with the WeDo 2.0 software before you purchase.
The WeDo 2.0 Core Set comes with a Smarthub that takes 2 AA batteries and the batteries will last well. However, you can buy a WeDo Smarthub Rechargeable Battery so that it is easier to keep your Smarthub charged and ready for action.
