IoT platform “obniz” developed and provided by Cambrian Robotics Co., Ltd. becomes “Artec Robo 2.0”, a programming teaching material developed and sold by Artec Co., Ltd., a comprehensive manufacturer of teaching materials for kindergartens, nursery schools, elementary schools, junior high schools, and high schools. It was adopted.

The new course of study announced by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in March 2017 includes items for compulsory programming education for elementary schools from 2020, and programming education will be provided at an early stage of the curriculum in the future. It turns out that the need will increase.

The adoption of obniz in Artec’s teaching materials makes it possible to provide robot programming education that is easy to start from any stage, from elementary school to high school, according to age and literacy. obniz will contribute to the development of human resources who can adapt to the AI ​​era and the global society by providing a more practical programming learning environment and backing up the spread of content.

Below is a quote from the press release

Cambrian Robotics Co., Ltd. (Headquarters location: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, CEO: Yuki Sato) develops and provides IoT platform “obniz”, which is a comprehensive manufacturer of kindergarten / nursery school and elementary / junior high school / high school teaching materials (Headquarters location: Yao City, Osaka Prefecture, President: Etsu Fujiwara) has been adopted for the programming teaching material “Artec Robo 2.0 (Artec Robo 2.0)” developed and sold.

Obniz adopted for Artec Robo 2.0

The new course of study announced by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in March 2017 includes items for compulsory programming education for elementary schools from 2020, and programming education will be provided at an early stage of the curriculum in the future. You can see that the need is increasing.

In addition, from 2022 in high school, “Information I” including programming will be a common compulsory subject, and “Information II” will be newly established, so the degree of attention to programming education in secondary and higher education will be further increased. It is increasing.

However, most of the programming teaching materials currently on the market are divided into those for learning the basics of programming and those for learning practical programming, and the problem is that it is difficult to learn programming step by step with one teaching material. I’m holding it.

There are three advantages to introducing obniz as a teaching material.
1. Easy and practical learning of JavaScript (Javascript)
It is easy for beginners to learn, and it is possible to learn programming with JavaScript, which is widely used in actual work. It will also lead to stepping up to advanced programming languages ​​such as Python and Ruby used in the development of AI and IoT.

  1. Programming environment that can be operated on a Web browser
    Programming is possible in any environment, not limited to personal computers, such as tablets and smartphones.
    Furthermore, it is easy to link with operations and displays, such as controlling the robot with the operation buttons displayed on the browser and displaying the temperature and speed acquired by the sensor as a graph on the browser.

  2. Save the created program in the cloud
    You can save the program file on obniz Cloud and execute the created program on your smartphone or tablet device. Another feature is that if you prepare one program on the cloud, you can use any number of devices from anywhere via the network.

With the adoption of obniz as a teaching material for Artec, it will be possible to provide robot programming education that is easy to start from any stage, from elementary school to high school, according to age and literacy.
obniz hopes to contribute to the development of human resources who can adapt to the AI ​​era and the global society by providing a more practical programming learning environment and backing up the spread of content.

◆ About obniz
It is an IoT platform that enables easy and quick IoT conversion and control of various devices via the Internet. The features are that it is possible to develop simple software regardless of the programming language, and that it is possible to control multiple hardware remotely via the Internet. Since software development can be done only on the cloud side, inexpensive and speedy introduction can be realized. It can be very easily introduced into various teaching materials and kits in STEM education.
We provide a dedicated electronic board obniz Board, an IoT-optimized cloud (obniz Cloud), and an operating system (obnizOS).

◆ About obnizOS
By installing obnizOS on a chip or board equipped with ESP32, it is possible to link with obniz Cloud.
