ROBOTS - RObots BOosts Skills

  • 2017-1-ES01-KA202-038277

The preparation of the Erasmus+ KA2 ROBOTS Project – RObots Boosts Skills in which “Unirea” National High School is a partner, has as its general objective to enable students that study ESTEAM (Entrepreneurship Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics) subjects to develop transversal skills and key competences such as digital competences, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving and independent learning. Students will develop their ideas and develop their own creations through learning experiences by applying ESTEAM concepts, promoting equality, personal fulfillment and development, social inclusion, active citizenship, and engaging in the digital age using robots.

The question we often ask ourselves as ESTEAM teachers is how important it is to work collaboratively to make learning more effective. The first thing to keep in mind is that group work improves student involvement and participation, mainly because of their active role in lessons. Students should not be silent spectators; on the contrary, they are encouraged to actively participate in class. Confucius said: “I have heard and forgottent, I see and remember, I do and understand,” and this is probably the slogan that summarizes the importance of active learning methodology.
