Introducing robotics in schools means helping students acquire and experiment with the same skills and reasoning methods that become useful for their professional future. Robotics helps teachers capture students’ attention and stimulate motivation through activity-based learning methods.
The power of e.DO as an educational platform lies in the fact that robotics promotes life skills such as cooperation, communication, problem solving, group work and even creativity. Robotics is an interdisciplinary tool for teachers and students, not a new subject. By making traditional subjects and innovative topics more exciting, fun and interactive, robotics promotes engagement – which is arguably one of the most important aspects of learning.
Within robotics lie aspects of mechanics, electronics, electrotechnics and computer science, all of which are able to develop both the skills needed to work with robots and those needed to better manage programs, communication systems, networks, machines. What’s more, both teachers and students can hone the STEM and soft skills which are useful now and in the future.
