Schedule (planned)

Background of this symposium

Recently, lessons related to programs and measurement / control using robots have attracted attention at the world level, and even in Japan, they have entered the teaching guidelines for “technology”, which is a junior high school lesson subject, but there has been a chronic shortage of instructors. It is in the state of. This symposium will provide a place for information exchange, focusing on the practice reports of educators who are directly instructing elementary, junior high and high school students in school settings and community education. Teachers who are considering introducing robots into classes, those who are interested in community education, and those who are interested in robots and related technologies are also invited to participate, which will lead to the development of instructors in Japan. I sincerely hope that you will continue to do so.

  • In the research report on human resource development published by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, LEGO Mindstorms used in WRO was introduced as the main hardware used for programming education, and WRO was also introduced to improve motivation and raise awareness of educational effects. , And the contribution of this NPO corporation is introduced.
