ROBOTIC AND STEAM FOR KINDERGARTEN

Robotic it’s a motivational tool to practice concepts in Kindergarten classes. Our robotic training aims to introduce in coding concepts, STEAM projects and robotic techniques as effective tools for teaching process and development for children. All the time learning by doing and playing.

 

In the kindergarten period (ages 4-6), students learn by experimenting and playing. Thanks to robotics and coding, we can use these tools to work and reinforce new concepts and assess whether our students are understanding and integrating them into their learning in a playful way. During the course, we will create projects of experimentation, language, mathematics, art or construction in which they will be the protagonists of their learning. A different way to work skills such as teamwork, problem-solving, communication or failure tolerance within STEAM projects (Science, Technology, Engineer, Art, and Mathematics).

Coding is a new language that needs to be understood and applied. Thanks to it, students learn to divide the challenges into smaller activities, to agree with their peers and to accept their turn. Playfully they learn the scientific method of hypothesis-test-improvement important for their educational future. They use a motivating tool where teachers can easily evaluate their social and communicative evaluation if they understand and integrate the concepts worked in the classroom and their creativity.

A need and profile analysis will be sent to participants to determine the needs and profile of participants before the course. This form of participant profile is very important for us to see the level of knowledge and awareness about the topic, the needs of participants and expectations According to the information obtained from this form, our program is designed. Before our participants come to the country where the course will be implemented, they must make the necessary preparations for the topic. We will send to participants an information pack which has the necessary information to not to face problems during the course and other times. This package includes all logistical information (weather, currency, airport transfer, course location details, contact information, etc.) and preparations for participants for the course. In the course organization team, we have a guide for the groups for practical arrangements and the problems.

Our course is mostly conducted by non-formal education methods. Participants are actively involved in our creative drama activities, and participate in the activity in abundance and learn by having fun. We don’t like power point presentation based courses. We have materials, our body as the most important instruments and creativity. Group and individual works and experiential learning based studies are carried out.

At the end of the course, general oral and written evaluations are made and achievements of the participants are assessed. Cultural excursions and closing events are organized after the course closed with a certificate of attendance. We will share our photos, videos, reports, and materials which are produced during the course with the participants. The course will be monitoring by trainers and reports will be prepared by trainers to inform participants about the quality of the course, outcomes, evaluation results, feedbacks and etc.
