Overview

Would you like an innovative, engaging way to teach your students a variety of critical skills all while cultivating an interest in STEM-related subjects and teaching them valuable, easy-to-learn visual programming skills? Join Dr. Gregory Firn as he explores how robots and robotics in the classroom can be used to motivate students and improve academic performance, leading to increased enrollment in advanced areas of science and mathematics. He will show how interacting with these robots through the use of visual programming can enhance critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, creativity, and social skills.

In addition to discussing the benefits of next generation coding and visual programming, Gregory will show how easy it is for teachers to learn and will provide examples of how it can be incorporated in K-12 classrooms. He will introduce you to Robots4STEM, which helps to build and enhance STEM-related skills, and to Robots4Autisim, which helps to increase engagement and cultivate social skills. Come discover how to put this cutting edge, educational resource to work in your schools.

Interesting presentation! Glad to learn about the resources and the research findings about STEM . I was surprised to see that gender gap persists in higher education in a developed society.I fully agree that teachers are sometimes reluctant to integrate certain tech tools because they do not feel comfortable enough. Such a feeling is largely accounted for by the lack of adequate and sufficent professional training. This is the reason why teachers look for professional development opportunities like the ones provided by SimpleK12.
