Join David Gassner for an in-depth discussion in this video Programming virtual robots: RoboMind, part of Programming Foundations: Programming for Kids.
…Robomind is another product that you can use…to introduce a programming language for the first time.…You can download Robomind from the website at www.robomind.net.…On this website you'll find links for educational resources for many ages.…Documentation for the product and the programming language,…the software itself, and a link to the…RoboMind Academy, a website that has free courses…for learning how to work in the RoboMind software.…
RoboMind is available for Mac and Windows.…It's not completely free.…There is a small annual charge for it, but it offers kids the ability to…learn a simple programming language, and do…something really fun, that is, control a robot.…Where Logo uses the turtle as a drawing mechanism,…RoboMind uses a robot and let kids how to manage…it, how to move it around the screen, make…it paint on the screen and do other fun things.…
RoboMind's language is similar to Logo's.…It uses single word commands and a very simple syntax.…I'll start by turning the robot to the right and making it move three blocks.…
