LEGO® Education sviluppa l'apprendimento nella scienza, tecnologia, ingegneria e matematica con la nuova piattaforma Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS®

Oggi, LEGO® Education ha annunciato la disponibilità della piattaforma Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS®, la prossima generazione di robotica per le aule scolastiche che porta avanti una tradizione di 15 anni di tecnologia robotica MINDSTORMS per l'educazione. La piattaforma EV3 è stata creata in base al feedback da oltre 800 educatori in tutto il mondo e fornisce un programma di robotica pertinente e la tecnologia per insegnare informatica, scienza, tecnologia, ingegneria e matematica attraverso esperienze dirette con sensori, motori, programmazione e il componente programmabile EV3. Gli studenti possono ora costruire e programmare un robot completamente funzionante in una sola lezione di 45 minuti.

La piattaforma include un programma personalizzabile offerto in formato digitale e che può essere installato direttamente nel pacchetto di programmazione software lobby MINDSTORMS di LEGO Education. Il libro di esercizi incorporato può essere usato dagli studenti per memorizzare il loro lavoro mentre progrediscono con le lezioni, rendendo facile per gli insegnanti il lavoro di controllo del progresso degli studenti e la valutazione degli stessi.

La piattaforma EV3 comprende progetti ingegneristici e un pacchetto di programmi con 30 ore di istruzioni per il lavoro nelle aule. La struttura delle attività del programma di progetti ingegneristici segue i reali processi ingegneristici usati dagli scienziati e dagli ingegneri in molti settori. Utilizzando i video di robot reali come ispirazione, gli studenti hanno a disposizione una direttiva per la progettazione che li incoraggia a sviluppare, progettare e condividere la loro soluzione. Durante tutto il processo, gli studenti imparano grazie alla combinazione e all'applicazione di competenze disciplinari scientifiche, tecnologiche e matematiche mentre costruiscono il loro progetto. Questa struttura è studiata per aiutare gli studenti a sviluppare le capacità di pensiero creativo, problem-solving, lavoro di squadra e le capacità comunicative necessarie al successo sia in ambito scolastico che nel mondo reale.

Il pacchetto principale Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS comprende la componente EV3 Brick, una batteria ricaricabile, sensori, motori, un'ampia selezione di altre componenti, una ruota a palla nuova e le istruzioni di costruzione. La piattaforma software intuitiva per EV3 si basa sul software di programmazione grafica di National Instruments LabVIEW™, la stessa tecnologia che è alla base di alcune delle più grandi innovazioni sul pianeta e che include nuove capacità di inserimento dei dati che permette agli studenti di raccogliere, tracciare grafici e calcolare i loro risultati. Inoltre è disponibile il pacchetto di sviluppo Education EV3 di LEGO MINDSTORMS, che consente agli studenti di costruire robot ancora più grandi e complessi. Per facilitare la gestione dei corsi in aula, sia il pacchetto principale che quello di sviluppo sono forniti di contenitori e di vassoio per l'ordinamento.

LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 può già essere pre-ordinato e sarà pronto nel semestre autunnale del 2013.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic • Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it’s a mix of architectural style...
