LEGO® Education draagt bij tot de verdere ontwikkeling van STEM-onderwijs met LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education EV3-platform

Vandaag heeft LEGO® Education het LEGO MINDSTORMS® Education EV3-platform aangekondigd. Dit is de nieuwste generatie van robottechnologie voor het klaslokaal, voortbouwend op 15 jaar MINDSTORMS robottechnologie voor het onderwijs. Het EV3-platform is gebaseerd op feedback van meer dan 800 docenten wereldwijd en biedt een relevant lesprogramma en robottechnologie voor het doceren van computerwetenschappen, wetenschap, technologie, techniek en wiskunde door middel van een praktijkgerichte benadering met sensoren, motoren, programmering en de programmeerbare EV3-bouwsteen. Studenten kunnen nu een volledig functionerende robot bouwen en programmeren binnen een enkele lesperiode van 45 minuten.

Het platform omvat een aanpasbaar lesprogramma dat digitaal wordt gepresenteerd en dat rechtstreeks wordt geïnstalleerd op de LEGO Education MINDSTORMS-programming software lobby. Het ingebouwde digitale werkboek kan door studenten worden gebruikt om hun werk vast te leggen tijdens het doornemen van de lessen, waardoor de docent de vorderingen van studenten eenvoudiger kan volgen en hun werk kan beoordelen.

Het EV3-platform omvat Design Engineering Projects, een lespakket met 30 uur aan lesmateriaal voor klassikaal onderwijs. De structuur van de activiteiten in het lesprogramma voor Design Engineering Projects volgt het proces voor techniekontwerp dat wordt gehanteerd door wetenschappers en technici in diverse bedrijfstakken. Met video’s van robots uit de praktijk ter inspiratie krijgen de studenten een beknopte ontwerpopdracht die hen uitdaagt tot het ontwikkelen, ontwerpen en delen van hun eigen oplossing. In de loop van het gehele proces doen de studenten kennis op door het combineren en toepassen van vaardigheden op het gebied van wetenschap, technologie en wiskunde om een ontwerpoplossing op te zetten. Deze structuur is ontworpen om studenten te helpen bij het ontwikkelen van creatief denken en het oplossen van problemen in teamvorm, en het ontwikkelen van de communicatieve vaardigheden die noodzakelijk zijn voor succes op school en daarna.

De LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Core Set omvat de EV3-bouwsten, een oplaadbare batterij, sensoren, motoren, een grote selectie bouwstenen, een nieuw balwiel en bouwinstructies. Het intuïtieve softwareplatform voor EV3 is gebaseerd op de grafische programmeersoftware National Instruments LabVIEW™. Op deze technologie zijn enkele van de belangrijkste innovaties op onze planeet gebaseerd. De technologie bevat nieuwe mogelijkheden voor gegevensregistratie waarmee studenten hun gegevens kunnen verzamelen, in kaart brengen en doorrekenen. Daarnaast is er de LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Expansion Set, die studenten in staat stelt grotere, complexere robots te bouwen. De basisset en uitbreidingsset zijn beide voorzien van opslag- en sorteerruimte om de klassikale instructie eenvoudig te beheren.

LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 kan nu al worden besteld en zal in het najaar van 2013 worden geleverd.
