Learning how to code is more important than ever for students.
Coding helps develop skills like problem-solving, logical thinking and creativity It is becoming increasingly fundamental in the 21st Century workplace.
To help you introduce coding to your classroom, we've partnered with ed-tech companies like Sphero Edu, Micro:bit and Minecraft: Education Edition to help integrate coding into the 21st Century classroom through innovative and fun learning programmes.
Used in conjunction with Sphero robots, Sphero mats are a great way of generating fun and engaging activities with students. Our team of teachers on staff, in collaboration with our partner educators at Nala Education, have created a unique Sphero Activity Mat designed to teach 21st Century skills through coding right across the curriculum.
For a limited time only we are giving away two Spheros and our new Sphero Mat FREE to the first five schools who follow Wriggle on Twitter and Like and Share our Sphero Ireland Mat post. (Offer ends 31st May!)
