Integrating robotics into education has opened up new opportunities for both educators and students, offering a wide range of benefits and possibilities. Let's explore seven key advantages of using robotics in the classroom:
Introducing robotics and programming to K-8 students helps them develop problem-solving, critical thinking, and collaboration skillswhile making learning hands-on and fun. Robotics education also encourages students to actively engage with their learning. Mimioby Boxlight has long been a proponent of preparing students for a future of diverse opportunities and experiences through their educational technology solutions, including STEM focused products. Today MimioSTEM is introducing the next generation of its popular and award-winning MyBot with the MimioMyBot Recruit.
I love being in a classroom that’s engaged in hands-on learning. The combination of excitement, silliness, creativity, and problem-solving all coming together is one of my favorite things. In my role as MimioSTEM product manager, I spend every day developing content and thinking of fun ways to use our technology products in the classroom but it’s always a special treat to get to experience it first-hand.
