Our curricula aim to popularize classic children’s and young adult literature while developing the students’ cognitive and socio-emotional functions, employing ArTeC robots and according to the challenges of the modern age.
Our goal was to develop a pedagogical methodology package that provides educators with the opportunity to effectively develop their students’ comprehension, algorithmic thinking, spatial-visual processing, cooperation skills, and creativity using innovative tools. All this can be used effectively for SEN, talented, and underperforming talented students with the approach of inclusive pedagogy, based on the individual needs of the students. Development can be implemented either in classes or in special activity form.
We have developed a module matrix which allows for differentiation, so that even children working together in a group on a piece of text can receive personalized development. All this is helped by the literature excerpts themselves, the worksheets created at the intersection of the targeted nine development areas, the teacher guides, sample robots, and the robot programming knowledge base.
Our lessons are based on European literature and cultural heritage: fairy tales, novels, and history.. Among them, you can find: The Paul Street Boys & Vuk (Hungary), Camino de Santiago & Don Quixote (Spain), The Walk of the Absent-Minded Boy & The Comic Book Mouse (Italy), The Five Loaves & The Enchanted Pig (Romania), Alice in Wonderland & The Jungle Book (European).
Learning materials are prepared in variations to practice different developmental skills: text comprehension, graphomotor skills, spatial orientation, attention, social competences, computational thinking – life skills, technical knowledge (physics, robotics, engineering), teaching other subjects with robotics, creativity, and talent development.
What can you find on these pages? Tips on how to use our materials, a general teacher’s guide, video lessons from the training program to use RIDE materials effectively (psychological background, methodological recommendations, ArTeC robotics basics), and you can review the module matrix as well.
