Do you want to become advance and creative ? Do you want to save your time ? Do you want to inspire people and want to be a role model for future generation ? Then keep reading this article you will get to know your answer soon 😊 . You know, Technology is changing the way people do things in every part of the world, and the sector continues to expand. What are schools doing to prepare the next generation for the future?
The truth is that educational institutions are already doing a great deal of work in this area. In fact, everything we see today in robotics can trace its origins to research, and an academic paradigm that brought on board policymakers, scientists, and governments.
Now, teaching robotics in school is becoming an increasingly indispensable part of the curriculum.
Do you know what is a robot first ?
It is a machine capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically, especially one programmable by a computer.
Why teach robotics in schools?
Robotics is gaining momentum in many schools worldwide. By learning robotics students can learn self development which lead them to be more creative and productive leading to a rise in efficiency and better opportunity for jobs. They can become more innovative by learning programming and technological skill which gives a guarantee for higher payment as there is a huge demand for this not only in Bangladesh but also worldwide.
Why it is important ?
1) Programming skills
As artificial intelligence becomes more prevalent in homes, schools, and offices, a little programming knowledge will help everyone understand how these bots work.
You know, Learning to program a computer is an excellent skill to have to make students more likely to get a job in the future, and earn more money in their lifetime. Teaching young students the abstract subject of programming can be a challenging feat. Programming is often too complex for most students to grasp. Robotics is a simpler to understand and more tangible introduction to programming.
When students program physical robots, it’s easier for them to see what goes wrong as they learn what robots can and cannot do. They learn the skills needed to create precise and accurate instructions and have fun while learning valuable lessons. Teaching robotics in schools gives students the opportunity to address the growing demand of teaching STEM subjects while learning how science, engineering, math, and technology work together and interact.
2) Increase Creativity
Students can learn so much from robotics. Do you want to know how ? Students have the opportunity to create something tangible and make it perform the actions that they program it to do. Not a lot of fields combine creativity with engineering and technology—robotics does. When students are given the opportunity to create something interactive that they think is cool, their engagement levels increase, and they retain more information. You might be surprised at the things kids can create when given the right information and tools.
Robotics incorporates a range of skills, and thus promotes a learning environment for people with different talents. If properly harnessed, it also promotes a culture of teamwork. It can even be used to help students who might struggle to learn in traditional classroom settings – for example, the ASK NAO robot was developed to help autistic students, and its main goal to bring everyone on board through modern educational-technology approaches in academia.
4) Learning coding
By robotics education students can also learn coding,which will help in math and Science class.
Coding is the language of problem solving and he is teaching kids not how to code, but rather, coding to learn. In a good 21st century classroom, you’re always giving your kids choice, in how they’re going to share out the knowledge that they’re gaining from you,” I believe “Coding in my class has naturally become part of that sharing. Once they begin to code and I take through some of the basic coding apps and basic coding skills, kids are able to figure out how to use code to share out their learning, which is where it becomes very powerful. It’s not really about the coding, it’s about the learning.”
Mobile gaming is changing the way we educate our children. Even games that don’t appear to be educational are teaching something — logic or problem solving for example. In that, it is a short step for children from an application that is a game, to an application that is an educational game.
Regardless of the feelings of parents, many of which come from an analog generation of education, iPads and mobile gaming are finding a place in the modern classroom. “When parents truly start to understand that their kids aren’t just playing Minecraft or Angry Birds on the iPad all day or watching instructional videos — once they realize what it truly is, then they really get on board. So this robot will tour guides on the road to fully integrating mobile STEM learning in schools.
5) Prepare them for the future
It’s no secret that jobs in the STEM field are the fastest growing careers, and are projected to grow another 17 percent in the next decade. Industries such as the drone industry has grown dramatically and rapidly in the last couple of years. The Economist has reported that more than 15,000 drones are being sold in the US every month. Growing industries such as these are going to need people who can come up with new and innovative ideas, and be equipped with the knowledge to design and create the technology needed.
By the time all of our students graduate in a few years or so, over half of the available jobs will be in the STEM field and a large chunk of the rest will require employees to have some STEM knowledge. When students are introduced to robotics in their school years, they can discover any interests and talents that they may have in this job market. Without the knowledge or access to robotics education, there’s no way for students to build interest in these fields. Without robotics education in public schools, who knows how many potential creators and innovators there are who were never given the resources to realize their potential.
6) Happiness and innovation
Learning about robotics is fun – and as User Experience designers continue to improve how it feels to interact with robots, it will only become more so! It will Teach Children How to Turn Frustration into Innovation
Learning how to build and program a robot can be a complex and difficult process. Many students will struggle with the concepts at first and often get frustrated. Robotics in schools can help these students turn their frustration into creativity and innovation. This is a valuable life lesson that teaches our students perseverance and determination when faced with challenges. Students learning robotics are able to channel their frustration into trying harder and aiming higher. All their hard work makes looking at that finished product even sweeter at the end. Not only does teaching students robotics teach them how to persist and solve problems, but it also helps them increase their maturity levels and prepare them for real-world situations.
7) Preserve and prepare
Creating and programming bots is challenging. However, working through frustration helps students develop a never-give-up attitude. It imparts determination, which is crucial for any technological or scientific undertaking and with
With advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence, driverless cars, and spacecrafts taking shape every day, the present generation of students needs to be more prepared for technological changes than any before
8) Promoting Inclusivity
Robotics is a field that is easily accessible to a wide range of students with varying talents and skills. Studies have shown robots do a great job of engaging students on the autism spectrum. Children with autism are able to easily respond to the consistent, calm, and clean interactions that robots give them. Robots like ASK NAO and Milo have been developed to aid autistic students with learning and understanding their emotions.
Robotics is also a field that has the ability to empower young girls in the classroom. STEM-focused fields are traditionally male dominated, leaving young girls to question their ability to program or build computers. Because the tech world is not one that focuses on or is created for girls, by engaging them with robotics and technology in the classroom we can begin to change that. When girls realize their ability to build robots and program, they are empowered to have successful futures and create innovative technology.
By robotic learning students can get inspire as now they don’t have to follow the same boring educational system. Now they will become curious as it is more fun and innovative which therefore will make them more developed and as such better future is guaranteed.
Thank you so much 😊 !
