Will 2019 be the year Student Robotics breaks through to become the most favored approach to hands-on, maker-oriented, STEAM Instruction?
SPECIAL REPORT PREVIEW | by Mark Gura with Edtech Digest
“Student Robotics is one of the very most powerful approaches to instruction today. It enables the introduction and integration of highly relevant and engaging varieties of learning, including maker and project based activities, helping to establish effective STEAM Curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) as a featured part of classroom practice.
A comprehensive view
The upcoming guide, The State of Student Robotics: An Educator’s Guide, will give a comprehensive view of the state of student robotics: materials, practices, and curriculum—as well as explaining how Student Robotics can effectively fit within the school‘s organization and instructional program.
This will be a guide for educators who want to finally get started with robots, as well as for those who have a program underway but who understand there’s a great deal more for their school community to gain by going ‘all in’ on robotics.
Those hoping for a thorough explanation of what Student Robotics is and how it can help further establish the school as a vital, alive, exciting STE(A)M-rich learning environment will appreciate this publication.
The report will be primarily authored by Mark Gura, author of the popular Getting Started With LEGO Robotics (ISTE Publications) and other notable pieces on Student Robotics for publications that include Edutopia and ISTE’s magazine Learning & Leading with Technology, and his own blog, Classroom Robotics.
The State of Student Robotics: An Educator’s Guide will include quotes and nuggets of advice from prominent practitioners in the field as well as from materials providers and others who have important ideas to share.
The planned content for the guide includes infographics that will serve as a reference for educators as they make comparisons of materials to inform themselves about which seem most READ MORE…“
