:Project and Problem Solving Blog::

This assignment will require students in a group (max 4 students per group) to design, implement and test a simple instructional environment (teaching resource). The assignment will require you to build an example student project with the robotics equipment including all necessary programming. The project must be set within the context of a classroom activity and you need to explain how it fits into the curriculum and what the outcomes of this project are in terms of learning for the students. Teacher notes sufficient for another teacher to use should also be included as part of this documentation. As part of the construction phase and programming phase you must also keep a problem solving log and develop a short video (max. 2 mins) of the final product which must be uploaded to the blackboard site. Additionally you must also submit to your lecturers and upload to the Blackboard site a project proposal by 13/03/2009 (max. 1 page). This assessment item will be used to evaluate performance in Outcomes 1, 2 and 3 and will be administered progressively. Final Project and Blogs due 30/03/2009.

LEGO® Education school solutions enable educators to cover a wide range of curriculum targets within science, technology, engineering and maths in a fun, hands-on and engaging way.

Students explore problems and invent their own solutions. They behave as young scientists and technical investigators, making their own discoveries all the way.

Our solutions are also designed to encourage students to use their imagination, try out their problem-solving skills and cooperate with others.

Brick sets and activities are designed for 2 to 4 students working together. Each student can contribute to the process of designing, building and testing solutions.

The assortment is divided into two main categories:
1. Design, Science and Technology
2. ICT/Robotics

Uses of Robotics in Education

Robots and robotic technologies have an intellectual and emotional appeal that surpasses any other type of engineered product. This appeal has attracted the inquisitive minds of children and young adults. These technologies represent a practical application of physics, computer science, engineering, and mathematics, and provide a very effective and flexible approach to demonstrate a range of engineering concepts. As a result, robotic technology and robots are being used by a growing number of educators at the college level to reinforce computer science and engineering theory, and to teach basic software and mechanical engineering at the grammar school, middle school and high school levels. For the younger learners, robots and robotic technologies offer them interest in the fields of science, mathematics and computer fundamentals, as well as teach them basic life skills such as: responsibility, problem solving, decision making, goal setting, self-esteem, logical thinking, sequencing, troubleshooting, modification skills, engineering basics and computer programming.
