iPad teacher training Scotland

Connecting physical and digital learning in a STEM context and getting started with code with our robot friends, Dash and Dot.



It’s a big world out there, and Dash & Dot are ready to help you explore. Program them to squeal when you pick them up, navigate around sharp corners, or be on the lookout for approaching siblings or pets. Explore how iPads, coding and robots can make for powerful, engaging and exciting learning.


Join our very own Simon Johnson as he provides an introduction to our new best friends, Dash and Dot and gives delegates some programming fun time, hands on with iPads.


WONDER DASH AND DOTDash & Dot are capable robots that can sense their environment and can be programmed wirelessly using a touch device. Dash & Dot are designed to be fun at your home, in the classroom and in a child’s play room. The combination of sensors on these robots, the child friendly programming tools on tablets and smart phones, and the design of the robots makes it fun and easy for kids (and grown ups!) to do several activities with robots that would have seemed impossible until now.
