Model of the Competences in Educational Robotics

Nataliia Morze, Oksana Strutynska

Abstract

The current state of development of robotics as an applied industry shows its intensive development. As a result, there is a growing demand for robotics specialists because of an urgent need for specialists to develop, design and program robots. This contributes to the popularity of robotics as an educational trend in Ukraine and around the world. The introduction of educational robotics as a part of STEAM education is a powerful step for development of students' soft skills, training for the implementation of real socially significant projects, formation of practical value of theoretical knowledge, scientific world outlook and successful life in a digital society as a whole. Taking into account the trends in the development of robotics as an applied industry and educational trend, there is a need in training pre-service teachers to make them able to teach children educational robotics. In this regard, there is the issue of determining the structure of competences in educational robotics for teachers and ways of their development. The research proves that pre-service computer science teachers are the readiest to teach educational robotics in secondary schools. The article is devoted to the issues of developing a model of competences in educational robotics for teachers, as well as their formation in pre-service computer science teachers. The effectiveness of the model of competences in educational robotics is confirmed within the process of teaching disciplines of educational robotics for pre-service computer science teachers.
