Mineral carbonation of CO2, a rock solid remedy for global warming
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is the long-term solution, but capturing them and transforming them into something harmless could prove helpful – and viable – in the meantime
Schools are now introducing the basic principles of robotics to children at a very early age.
It is safe to say that tomorrow’s world will be technological and digital. Most of the people who will live in it are today playing and learning in playpens. And those who will organize that future world are studying in classrooms…. nowadays often with robots. Indeed, robotics will become a firm friend in child’s play and classroom study in the coming years. Many educational centers are now introducing the basic principles of robotics to children at a very early age.
Leon Sterling, Doctor in Pure Math and Emeritus Professor at Swinburne Technological University in Melbourne, Australia, explains in an article in the online academic review, The Conversation, why educational robotics offers multiple advantages for educating children.
Sterling summarizes the five ways in which robotics can become the best friend of students and teachers:
Another expert has pointed out a further pedagogic advantage to using robots in the classroom. Arnaldo Héctor Odorico, educational and robotics researcher at Buenos Aires University, reminds us of the importance of learning by the method of trial and error. Robots are an excellent means for this type of conceptual retention, since the work with them is always aimed at finding a solution so that the program functions and involves making mistakes that can be corrected at the keyboard.
The introduction of robotic education in the classrooms has already been proven to have many benefits. Tomorrow’s world is being learned today in an environment populated by robots.
