Learning objectives, skills and competencies This project aims to introduce students to the basics of Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and involve them actively with engaging online activities. By creating their own intelligent video motion step by step, they will become familiar with new technology and acquire a more accurate understanding of the potentials and limitations of Machine Learning. The students will apply critical thinking and problem-solving skills, get acquainted with new technologies and new coding environments, develop positive attitudes, learn how to colllaborate, and value their peers’ opinions

The students will work in groups of 4 or 5 students created by a simple game. Part 1: Each group choose a hero from voki and create a message for the other groups. The message could be a very short story (it depends to the kids’ creativity) but it has to involve instructions that will help the other groups reach a picture or a toy which is placed on a chart that is created with tape on the classroom floor. Part 2: The kids listen to their schoolmates’ voki message, follow the instructions moving on the chart and reach the goal (picture/toy) they are asked to. Part3:. If we want we can go one step further and do the activity using beebot . The kids program beebot to move on a smaller chart created either on floor or on a table, according to the instructions of each Voki message. The teacher expains how Voki works,watches the students' groups offering help or quidance when needed. Through that activity, students get to know Voki and use it in a creative way through collaboration with each other. Additionally, they get aquainted with coding in a playful way.
