RoboDone.ie

Ireland’s Best Primary School Computing, Coding & Robotics Model.

Robo Done Ireland is led by Trevor Murphy Msc ITM. Trevor is the lead mentor and principal at KidsCoderClub.ie, Alignment.ie and Computingatschools.ie. These entities provide extra curriculum computing classes to primary and post-primary children, also specialise in aiding primary and post-primary school implement computer sciences in their classroom along with provide 21st century Website and Apps.

Our goal is to ensure every school in Ireland has a structured computer science syllabus which is continuously being updates and supported. Trevor’s MSc thesis was  ‘An examination of the usage of computing to aid learning in Irish primary schools’. This study uncovered the complete lack of direction, guidance and long-term planning from our Government with respect to computer sciences, coding and computing implementation into our primary schools sector, but also allowed the author examine what and how other counties are doing. Trevor attended a number of UK Computing at Schools (cas.co.uk ) events and also recently visited Japan to explore the methods and best practises being used by leading countries. From all of Trevor’s research the best model he has come upon is the Robo Done Model.

Robo Done Model – is a progressive primary school computing, coding and robotics programme which provides:

  • Full Computer Science Syllabus from 2nd to 6th
  • Continuously updated work books.
  • Progress learning usage of Lego elements.
  • Online student learning and testing environment.
  • Full teacher training & continuous support.
  • Financial reward structure for progressive schools. (Schools have full autonomy as to how they use this money)
  • Financial reward structure for progressive teachers.

This model promotes collaborative learning – What is collaborative learning?

Collaborative learning is an educational approach to teaching and learning that involves groups of students working together to solve a problem, complete a task, or create a product.
