Abstract

This paper shares the results of a qualitative study of 59 online pre-service teacher education students who completed an instructional module on applied Computational Thinking (CT), Assistive Technology (AT), and unplugged robot design. The unit culminated with students designing a robot drawing to solve an educational problem of their choice that incorporated accessibility features and answering questions about their robot. Data was collected via survey and student designed robot artifacts. This module was designed by computer science and education faculty
