IDF Robotics Education
We at IDF would like to take this MISSION to have STEAM based ROBOTICS education reach:
the schools which are providing education at a very low cost to kids of families who cannot afford education.
the schools where IDF already runs its Bal Gurukuls and Student Leadership Programs (SLP)
Why STEAM Education
Shifting to a STEAM perspective means understanding learning contextually; not only in terms of having a framework that illustrates where the subjects overlap, but also in providing a living and adaptable learning structure for ever-changing personal and global development.
STEAM is showing success in schools all around the world to better teach academic and life skills in a standards-backed, reality-based, personally relevant exploratory learning environment.
STEAM Educators report feeling rejuvenated by richer living work environments. They have the ability to use more diversification of teaching methods and be more of a facilitator to learners.
It empowers educators to meet the guidelines in a variety of unique and engaging ways and to meaningfully cross-reference concepts and vocabulary. They have the opportunity to teach collaboratively, exchange ideas, have easier preparations for substitutes and have more productive common planning times.
The teachers report feeling the positive shift from ME to WE in the staff as well as with students.
