Reflection: Complex Tasks Code and Cups - Section 4: Discussion and Redeisgn


When the tasks get harder it becomes harder to not cheat. In order to try to keep groups honest I have the robots make sure to have their programmers step away from the table and to choose only one if they need clarification for a written symbol or to understand the handwriting used to give a direction. If the students are left around the desks as the robots work they are more tempted to help and offer advise or fix what is happening.
