Educational Robotics In Primary School
The following research investigates the pedagogical conditions for implementing the process of teaching universal learning actions to primary school children during the process of teaching robotics in the context of supplementary education. The article describes the mechanism of teaching universal learning actions to primary school children in the process of teaching them robotics. The authors have defined the stages and devised the algorithm of teaching robotics to primary school children. There have been developed and implemented the diagnostic array of tools for comparative assessment of the level of acquisition of universal learning actions of primary school children both in the context of supplementary education and in their primary school curriculum. Constructing the process of teaching robotics in accordance with the stages and algorithms suggested by the authors allows to increase the effectiveness of teaching universal learning actions to primary school children. The article shows that constructing the teaching and educational process of forming universal learning skills during the process of teaching robotics to primary school students has a positive influence on the acquisition level of their cognitive interest. The students who attend robotics clubs have a higher level of reflective self-assessment of the learning activity. There are statistically significant differences in the achieved level of communicative learning skills among the students who attend robotics clubs and those who do not; the children who attend them have better developed communicative learning actions.
