Educating Teacher Students and Pupils Through Robotics Courses and Olympiads: A Tiered Approach

Igor M. Verner, Evgeny Korchnoy

This paper proposes an educational environment in which teacher students and school pupils form a learning community coping with common robotics challenges. The robot prototypes developed by the students are used by the pupils for experiential robotics studies. Our educational research focuses on the analysis of learning behaviors and the effect of the experimentation on development of creative thinking. It is found that collaboration of students and pupils in the common robotics environment is effective for educating both the teacher students and the pupils.
