Educational Robotics Gives Students Ownership Over Their Learning
Giving students real choices in the classroom through educational robotics can boost their engagement and motivation, allow them to capitalise on their strengths, and enable them to meet their learning needs. Educational robotics helps students feel a sense of autonomy, capability and relatedness.
Autonomy: Students feel autonomous when they understand the task, particularly if the tasks feels aligned with their values, interests, and goals.
Competence: Students feel competent when they believe they know what to do to be successful and feel capable of mastering challenges.
Belonging: Students feel a sense of relatedness from feeling close to people or a sense of belonging in a group
At VEX, we envision a world where every student has the opportunity to be inspired by the excitement of hands-on, minds-on STEM learning and the feeling of creating something with technology.
