R-learning = improved learning results?

R-learning = improved learning results? | Education | Scoop.it

In recent years, R-learning (robot-aided learning) has emerged as one of the efforts to adopt innovative technology in education for the improvement of education. By their narrow definition, R-learning refers to the “supply of young children education robots and contents according to the curriculum”. More broadly, it is defined as the “shift to digital education and the evolution of consilience integrating robot, contents, education program, and physical environment altogether”

I see so many things to explore: The PLTW program offers a curriculum that exposes students not only to theories and concepts, but to real-world applications such as robotics, turning each of its classrooms into what it calls a PLTW Innovation Zone.

VendorFit's curator insight, December 31, 2013 3:27 PM

Artificial intelligence is the holy grail of technological achievment, creating an entity that can learn from its own mistakes and can (independently of programmer intervention) develop new routines and programs.  The New York Times claims that the first ever "learning" computer chip is to be released in 2014, an innovation that has profound consequences for the tech market.  When these devices become cheaper, this should allow for robotics and device manufacture that incorporates more detailed sensory input and can parse real objects, like faces, from background noise.

How the Maker Movement is Transforming Education - We Are Teachers

How the Maker Movement is Transforming Education - We Are Teachers | Education | Scoop.it

"The Maker Movement, a technological and creative learning revolution underway around the globe, has exciting and vast implications for the world of education. New tools and technology, such as 3D printing, robotics, microprocessors, wearable computing, e-textiles, “smart” materials, and programming languages are being invented at an unprecedented pace. The Maker Movement creates affordable or even free versions of these inventions, while sharing tools and ideas online to create a vibrant, collaborative community of global problem-solvers."

Gord Holden's curator insight, January 3, 2014 10:36 AM

While many virtual environments have incredibly upside for role-play and immersive learning, Minecraft epitomizes a vital ingredient for so many children, the role of "making." I think there's an instinctual need to do so. Perhaps it's even what best defines us as humans from other species. And so, a vital aspect of all the platforms I use with Heritage Christian Online School is that they have a readily usable building aspect to them. Even with Unity3D, there will be Art courses preparing the students to be creating with it. My New Year resolution. : )

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, January 11, 2014 1:01 AM

This is what I have been researching over the break - the Maker Movement and how we can use materials and ideas to problem-solve and invent. I am convinced this is one of the primary ways in which we can really teach students relevant content and to encourage creativity.
