La Salle Campus Barcelona-URL participates in the new edition of the “Professors i Ciència” program promoted by the Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera with a program of robotics in the classrooms whose registration will be open until the 20 places are exhausted.
The Professors and Science program offers training to secondary school teachers in Catalonia to help improve their ongoing training and specialization and encourage the stimulation of scientific vocations in the students. The course of La Salle-URL, Robotics in classrooms: solving problems and learning of scientific and technical competencies, STEAM Social (S2TEAM), presents the current state of the sector from the academic and business approach of the use of Robotics to education and details resources and methodologies to implement educational and social robotics at the service of any curricular subject. During the course, three robots are programmed: the educational robot EV3 of LEGO, a robot based on Arduino and the social robot AISOY for an activity where social competences, computational thinking and engineering thinking are worked on in the classroom. The objectives of the course is that the professors – of profiles of biology, ethics and philosophy, computer science, mathematics, chemistry and technology – learn that it is the education in STEAM and to use technological tools, the benefits of the use of Robotics in education and know how to organize resources in this field in classrooms.
