Transforming Education: Amazing Advantages of Teaching Your Students Robotics

by on 11/05/2022 2628

In this increasingly complex and digitally interconnected world, it’s essential for schools to renew learning goals to ensure all students are equipped with skills that can prepare them for whatever career awaits them. However, no one can really predict exactly what the jobs of the future will be.

No doubt, the more complex the world becomes, the more creative we need to be to overcome its challenges. So, how can teachers bring these skills to the classroom and teach students to respond to rapid change?

Robotics is a surefire way to empower students with 21st century skills and inspire them to become the innovative leaders of tomorrow!

Why teach your students robotics?

Through robotics, students learn more than just coding. Here are the top 5 amazing advantages of integrating robotics into your school’s curriculum:

1. Makes learning fun

Robotics not only helps students understand how to build robots and code them, but also makes learning how to do so a whole lot of fun. When learning is fun, students are more willing to participate, which will result in better overall development over time.

2. Great opportunities for teamwork and collaboration

Many robotics projects require students to work together to achieve prescribed objectives. They need to discuss their thoughts and communicate with each other to solve problems, thus sharpening their teamwork skills, and even leadership abilities. In addition, there will also be plenty of opportunities for students to participate in competitions – a great motivator for improved team performance.   

3. Prepares students for the future

Robotics equips students with the knowledge and skills required for the future. The engaging activities in the programme help students develop critical thinking skills and enhance creativity as they formulate steps to create a desirable outcome. It’s a stimulating platform that encourages students to be persistent as they tackle problems to complete the task on hand. The challenging yet fun environment is conducive to fostering well-rounded life skills necessary for them to thrive in this fast-paced, technology-driven world.

4. A launchpad for students to realise their passions

Robotics offers students an open platform to explore many different learning pathways as they experiment with different designs to build their own unique robots. This may help them cultivate an interest in areas that they never knew they would love, such as 3D printing, coding and even the practical application of mechanics to the operation of household appliances.

Benefits students with special needs

One way to potentially support students with special needs, especially those who are autistic, is to engage them in robotics activities. A study about students with autism spectrum disorder who participated in robotics indicated that autistic students often gravitate towards robotics and technology. They specifically enjoyed coming up with ideas, creating inventions and solving quests. Although they will require additional support during lessons, robotics can help them learn to work better in teams and improve their self-confidence.
