A Method for Multi-Perspective and Multi-Scale Approach Convergence in Educational Robotics
The exponential growth of publications on educational robotics (ER) in the last 10 years, undoubtedly, in many ways, is due to the introduction and the ubiquitous application of such platforms as Arduino, micro:bit, Raspberry Pi, and others. These instruments offer a variety of ways for STEM curricula introduction. Being centered on technological and engineering issues, the ER methodology offers an excellent opportunity for students of different ages. By lowering the entry-level effort, the platforms significantly simplify the first steps in the field. Nevertheless, as every simplification presumes, a significant part of “underlying machinery” remains hidden. Indeed, the character of in-school ER projects barely holds enough space for a detailed treatment of the concepts. Nevertheless, the chapter illustrates the importance of exposing students to the currently available instruments and providing in-depth conceptual insight. To support the thesis, several examples, unifying multi-perspective and multi-scale approaches, are provided.
