About RoboPisces

RoboPisces project promotes a powerful transnational collaboration (Italy, Ireland, Latvia, Greece, Malta and Croatia) among international high-level academic institutions and Primary Education schools, triggering dedicated actions in the field of STEAM and digital skills education, incorporating innovative elements in their development and implementation by means of Educational Robotics (ER). ER creates an attractive learning environment by keeping students interested and motivated with hands-on, fun learning activities.

The project outcomes and results will be available not only for the target groups who will be directly participating, but also for other potential beneficiaries that will be reached (thanks to the impressive and fruitful networks of each involved partner) in order to build bridges and share knowledge between the different formal and informal education sectors. RoboPisces dissemination will raise awareness on Educational Robotics across Europe, opening the path for new initiatives aimed at reaching different pedagogical goals and facing global challenges. Dissemination will be ensured by a dedicated website and use of social media, press conferences, four multiplier events, newsletters to be distributed in partner countries and over Europe and involvement of partners from the school education institutions.

RoboPisces aims to create a teaching and learning curriculum based on ER through a constructionist educational approach and the design of a toolkit, called RoboFish, to engage primary school kids, with the purpose to enhance the learning outcomes in STEAM subjects. The RoboPisces project will take advantage of the considerable experience of all the partners involved in identifying, adopting, implementing and monitoring the ER curriculum for primary school education practices, helping educators to understand and improve their STEAM teaching styles and approaches to meet the emerging challenges of the science for citizens. RoboPisces intends to be in line with the EU effort to address challenges in education and training systems, contributing to the improvement of the quality and efficiency, thus boosting the achievement of the EU benchmark of under-skilled students in STEAM subjects. Moreover, by constructing and programming robots, pupils will be encouraged to use their own creative ideas and solutions in their work, thus developing transversal skills like rational thinking, creativity and innovativeness.

BUILD ROBOFISH

1. Improve potential students' achievement and engagement in STEAM and the acquisition of key skills and competences, through effective and innovative teaching, using Robotics kits and implementing innovative assessment strategies;

4.Fostering digital competence provision cross the curricula, tailored to specific age groups;

5. Improve student’s interest, participation and motivation in order to reduce and prevent ESL;

6. Enhance primary school teachers’ skills and comprehension in the field of robotics, enabling them to implement a robotic based curriculum and enhancing their professional development;

7.Create specific assessment tools to be delivered along with lesson plans to evaluate the outcomes of lessons (learning outcomes, attitude to learning, learning motivation etc.).
