Educational programming and robotics VI

May 2023

Educational Programming and Robotics, immersed in the paradigm of creative learning and from practice (learning by doing), brings together a lot of proposals, methodologies and content that cannot be abandoned in current curricular projects.

Programming allows us to approach any project that uses the digital world from a new punt of view: creative, experimental, cooperative, free and critical.

Robotics (the connection to the physical world of our computer projects) allows us to interact directly with the immediate environment, discover it, experiment, create artifacts, find real proposals and solutions... get excited!

This creative point of view, both in the virtual and in the physical world, is the key to meaningful and contextual learning, and empowers us to be active agents in our communities and address the challenges we have as society.

And that is why the STEAM sphere (with globalized learning that encourages research, dialogue and critical thinking) and the Maker culture (being curious, imaginative, committed, persistent, optimistic, taking risks, seeking resources and sharing) are ideal frameworks for the Projects of our Learning Experiences.

For the sixth year in a row, from 4 to 11 May we will meet in Faberllull Olot a passionate group of teachers, designers and creators of educational tools from around the world to promote these STEAM and Maker projects based on creative learning experiences in educational programming and robotics. Many of us already share projects during the year, from distant locations, enjoying the technologies that allow us to work remotely and asynchronously, but the personal and intensive meeting that Faberllull Olot offers us is an invaluable gift.

We will be working on:

• Programming tools and programmable devices with the coordination of the teams of Snap! and Microblocks (California, Massachusetts, Baden-Württemberg and Catalonia), Arduinoblocks (Alacant-Girona) and Snap4Arduino (Barcelona), designing and implementing new functionalities to respond to the new challenges and needs of classroom projects.

• Creative methodologies, research and educational innovation with the coordination of the teams of Cesire (Education Department) and RobolotTeam and the teams of Citilab-Edutec, FabLabBCN, leading teaching teams in this field in Spain and France (GranaBot, CantabRobots, AlcoiBot, IMERIR...), research teams (CSIC...) and reference projects (STEAMakers, EducaCont...)

• Online tools and platforms with the teams of MoodleHQ,, to adapt resources and activities to current needs and new teaching-learning formats.

We will design, develop, study, debate ... and create! And we will share it in the framework of the Robolot 2023. We will actively participate in the STEAMaker Project Fair on Friday, May 5 and in the Programming and Robotics Innovation Conference on Saturday, May 6
