EDUCATIONAL ROBOTICS IN SECONDARY SCHOOL: AN EMPIRICAL STUDY OF MOTIVATION AND STEM SKILLS

G.V. Vanykina, T.O. Sundukova

FULL TEXT: PDF (Rus)

Abstract

Educational robotics is increasingly present in secondary education and is gaining a large practical application, especially with the advent of Championships such as the FIRST LEGO League. These competitions are based on the globalizing orientation of different areas of the curriculum, so we believe that it is directly related to the achievement of combined (scientific, technical, engineering, artistic and mathematical) skills. We present a study that systematizes data based on the analysis of the results of works by foreign authors on the impact of studying robotics in high school on the educational process. The results suggest that both teachers and students believe that robotics contributes to the development of interest and scientific approach, as well as the formation of social skills through teamwork.

Key words

Educational robotics, secondary education, STEM skills, motivation to learn, project approach in training, teamwork, competence approach.
