ROBOTICS IN EDUCATION, AN APPROACH TO TECHNICAL SUBJECTS BASED IN PROJECTS

Sonia VAL, Jorge PASTOR, Gonzalo ROBLES

Abstract


This work aims to explore the effect of work based on projects graded at different levels of complexity in the area of knowledge of robotics. The method will increase the capabilities acquired by students, develop the metacognitive processes required to solve a project-based learning and analyzing their critical thinking. The study is focused on students of any education level and the methodology used consisted in the definition of a "problem" that had to be solved by the students used project-based method. Results will be measured in a group of secondary school students and the possibilities offered by this method will be discussed and compared to other systems of "traditional teaching", obtaining conclusions that could be extrapolated to other technical areas.

Keywords: Robotics, Project-based learning, Critical thinking, Students capabilities
