ER4STEM Generic Curriculum

The ER4STEM Generic Curriculum on educational robotics is a structured tool providing processes, templates and guidelines to navigate and better understand the educational robotics activity plans created under the ER4STEM project. The ER4STEM Generic Curriculum shows the progression between sets of activity plans, structured around use cases proposed by teachers. The ER4STEM Generic Curriculum employs the ER4STEM Framework, the ER4STEM Activity Plans and builds on the evaluation results obtained throughout the project implementation, as well as from teacher interviews, to create set of tools and processes to facilitate researchers, educators and other relevant stakeholders to carry out educational robotics workshops, based on the ER4STEM approach. The ER4STEM Generic Curriculum consists the following Key elements:
  1. The Generic Curriculum Paths Template facilitates different stakeholders to design Generic Curriculum Paths for different robotics toolkits, containing various educational robotics Activity Plans and addressing various STEM domains. It has a simple structure serving as the backbone for the formulation of the use cases, or the logic, behind a Generic Curriculum Paths.
  2. The Generic Curriculum Paths Aggregation provides an overview of the core values of the Generic Curriculum Paths. It aggregates the 21st century skills and targeted values, as well as the core subject-objectives of the Activity Plans, comprising a Generic Curriculum Path. It further gives an overview of the technologies, programming languages, total duration and targeted STEM domains to help an educator assess the applicability of a Generic Curriculum Path to their unique use case
  3. The Generic Curriculum Process provides a clear picture on the key steps that need to be planned and executed for the implementation of educational robotics workshops.
Those elements are described in details in the Deliverable 2.4 ER4STEM CURRICULUM. The Generic Curriculum is aligned to the ER4STEM Framework for Educational Robotics and is further described in detail in Deliverable 1.4 ER4STEM: An Operational and Conceptual Framework for Educational Robotics. The ER4STEM activity plans, also organized as interactive content in this repository, are also presented in detail in the Deliverable 4.3 Final Release of Activity Plans. The Generic Curriculum Map presented below is the contextual visualization of educational robotics learning opportunities, as organized content into a set of use cases and contexts. The inspiration behind the map are the city metro maps, visualizing possible ways to transfer from one point to another (prior knowledge, entry points and desired learning outcomes), the respective metro stations (the ER4STEM Activity Plans) that comprise metro lines and stations where lines could be changed. Within the legend of the map, you will find all the activity plans in the Curriculum Map, structured by ER4STEM project partner. Those activity plans are further organized around common use cases, proposed by teachers, in the actual map. Click on any activity plan within the map to visit the respective activity and view the Generic Curriculum Paths Aggregation within Deliverable 2.4 ER4STEM CURRICULUM to find out more about the paths themselves. You might also like to view the Generic Curriculum Path Template within the same deliverable, to create your own learning paths, following the ER4STEM Approach. Every curriculum path starts with an entry point (an activity that does not require any prior experience from the students, in order to engage with it), and intersects with other curriculum paths.
