Introductory Lesson Plans
Talk with InO-Bot: Once InO-Bot is connected with Bluetooth, InO-Bot can report information that answers important questions. Exploring these questions and answers will introduce students to the concept that robots can read data and report. Following are two queries that students can ask InO-Bot. There are more that will be introduced in future lessons.
Note: Logo is NOT case sensitive.
Is InO-Bot connected to Bluetooth? Type
INOBOT? in Logo’s Listener window. The response will be True or False. True and False states are important programming concepts. This provides a nice introduction to terminology and a clear example of something being in a true or false state.
What is your battery level? This gives students an example of data being reported back, and a preview of what is possible. Type
GPROP "INOBOT "BATTERY.
