Future Language is Robotic Coding

Robots starting to take their place in every area of our lives and they have become an indispensable
part of the 21st century thanks to the rapidly developing technology. When we think that robots will
do a lot of human works in recent history, it has become a necessity to give importance to robotic
education in schools and to provide development in this regard. As project partners, Robotics Coding
training is one of the most important issues that we focus on and give importance to.
Our Project was formed with the participation of eight different institutions from Tukey, Finland, Italy, Crotia, Portugal and Romania. As project partners, increasing the number of robotic coding classes and courses is one of our main objectives in our project. In addition, by increasing the quality of the robotic coding trainings given at partner schools is also one of our main objectives to provide more students and teachers to benefit from these trainings and to provide the Robotic Coding training given in special schools like Nezihe Derya Baltalı Science and Art center to the level that can meet the needs of gifted students. In this context, we plan to create an awareness for the proliferation of robotic coding classes in partner contries and allocate an important budget for robotic coding training.
Our target groups in our project will be a group of students of all ages who study at high school. Developing software, algorithms, language training, robot design and coding skills is one of our common goals with all our project partners. With our project, students and teachers will see various robotic and coding methodologies. Our participants will develop new coding techniques by exchanging ideas with team work in project activities, and will learn innovative methods and techniques by performing activities simultaneously with partner countries. We will organize small tournaments in order to increase the motivation of the students in the project. In this way, we will keep the students’ readiness levels and motivation at a high level during our project.
Robotic coding is an education that facilitates the perception of abstract and ambiguous science subjects. In our project, the integration of robotics coding to mathematics and science courses will also be discussed. As an innovative front for our project, it is planned to deliver this course in our project partner schools by carrying out activities related to the methods and techniques of the Robotic Assisted Mathematics course.
In the coding trainings, LEGO EV3, MBot, Arduino robot designs will be discussed and these robots will be controlled with Scratch, mBlock and C programming languages. The robot and the coding are integral to each other. While determining our activities with our partners, we also attached importance to the coding structure which will control the robot besides robot design. These robot designs will be used with many robot kits, so we will examine a wide range of robot design in today’s technology. In our project, we would like to transfer the good practices of each other as partner countries from all these robotic studies. In particular, Finland’s and Italy’s LEGO EV3 studies, applications mBot of Romania and Turkey’s, Croatia’s, Portugal’s Arduino experinces will ensure that the Project as a whole.
At the end of the project our students are expected to develop their skills for creativity and innovation, communication and cooperation, critical thinking, problem solving and decision making, digital citizenship, their understanding of the qualities of design, technology operations and concepts, and technological world.
The expected effects of our project on our schools in the short term will be as follows; positive outcomes that increase academic achievement will be obtained, awareness will be raised about coding, increasing interest in robotics, awareness of foreign language culture, increasing interest in mathematics and science, activities in line with European Union standards will be provided.
