Today’s youth are very much interested in science and technology. They also know that their knowledge in the field will open up new career opportunities. To kindle interest in those fields, youngsters should engage in technology activities, which will help build up mastery of essential technologies, and invigorate the classroom.
Teaching robotics in the classroom helps to make students creators of apps, programmes and inventions rather than becoming mere passive purveyors of technology. Robotics enables to develop a dynamic mindset in students, as well as nourish their thoughts and imagination to improve our world.
It moves students away from the private interface of a computer screen and into an active social community. Not only does the space of the student’s world increases in size, but also the benefits that computer science has to offer.
With technological advancement, the accessibility of robotics to the layperson has also improved. Two decades ago we could not have imagined the possibility of teaching robotics in the classroom. Robotics kits were not very advanced and limited to simple structures and motors. Now they are complicated enough to utilize a huge number of sensors and motors as well as interface with a desktop computer to allow for vigorous programming experiences, that too at affordable cost.
Here are some of the benefits of teaching robotics in the classroom.
Robotics helps children learn with all of their senses, as its focus is on dynamic, hands-on development. It is proven that to activate a larger number of cognitive connections you need a multi-sensory approach. Robotics engages the students emotionally and physically, which are essential for active learning and superior long-term experimental recall.
People learn from each other through imitation and observation, which is a well-known fact. This line of thinking holds true even today. Teamwork …
