Educational Robotics is a new teaching system which tries to develop the capacities of creativity, organization and collaborative work.
This system is based on the pedagogical current of constructivism which promotes creation, innovation and own design. This method seeks, in addition to strengthening knowledge, that students can adapt to current production processes. The planning of a class incorporating robotics is done by the teacher so that the student can solve problems where it is difficult for him to concentrate.
The use of robotics in education implies putting new activities in students so that they can develop disciplinary and transversal skills.
FOR EDU &
The objective of this project is to improve the levels of attention and motivation of the students of the Prepa Tec CCM, through the application of a robotic platform as a support tool for the teaching team of the mathematics department.
Design and implementation of a math class session, designed as part of the academic program for high school students
Programming a robotic system with basic and advanced
movements that accompany the design of the session and / or class. Design and methodology for the evaluation of the attention of high school students.
Establishment of a control and experimental group to be able to measure the impact of the robotic tool.
Analysis and evaluation of the process: quantitative and qualitative analysis.
“My general impressions about these days that were accompanying me in my classes, as they were various emotions. In general, it was a sequence of nervousness, later in the second class, on the second day, well, I kind of relaxed a bit because ... also the team, I mean, all of you have such a good vibe that makes me feel safe, and also well, I think that as if I ... I thought that if I felt comfortable I would do things better and the truth is that I was feeling comfortable.”
