Mentoring any student can be a challenge, even for the most experienced and well-rounded educators.

When you think about the field of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, also known as STEM, it may seem intimidating to lead by example for young, impressionable students. However, it’s an investment that’s worth considering when educating students about STEM topics.

Unfortunately, many STEM professionals never receive formal training on mentorship, but there are plenty of benefits to reap for both the mentor and mentee.

In addition, you’re probably aware of the racial and gender disparities between students. We need solid mentorship programs in K-12 schools to overcome these disparities, encourage all types of students to pursue STEM-related careers, and help them achieve their potential.

Let’s go over six tips that can help you mentor your STEM students to the best of your ability.

Robots for the Classroom | Increasing Classroom Success

By MOVIA Robotics

13. Nao and boy

For nearly 50 years, educators and robotics professionals have known that robots help kids with special needs learn. As our Founder and Chief Scientist, Tim Gifford has been quoted saying, “As far back as the 1970s, research has shown that children with special needs respond well to robots and that their interactions are effective.” 

This is especially true for children with autism. With an increase in autism awareness and understanding, more children in the United States than ever before are being diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). According to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 54 kids in the United States has been diagnosed with autism.

Why Use Robots?

There are many reasons why Robot-Assisted Instruction (RAI) helps children with autism learn and succeed in school and life.

How Robots Can Help and Simplify Processes on Education

By David Walker

Robotization allows people to more efficiently perform routine tasks. Rapid technological changes that we had in the last decade must increase the range of automated systems’ possibilities. This cannot but affect the student’s curriculum. Most countries, such as the USA, Korea, China, Turkey, are increasingly investing in STEM. This is the right strategy because innovation is everywhere around us.

Robotic systems are becoming more common every year. Such machines are useful for people of different specialties and students. So we decide to find out how advanced systems can affect the quality of education. This is an important issue for business leaders, students, and teachers who will need to improve their lectures.

There are thousands of enthusiasts who are confident that the time has come for AI systems. But that's not so clear considering the hardware costs. Of course, most students can use programmed robots in computer science lessons or during coaching.

A new academic year is beginning soon. While the global pandemic seems to have become more manageable at the time of writing, this back-to-school season won’t certainly be like any other. Let’s take a closer look at some predictions, expectations, and considerations for the 2021/2022 school year.

With almost two years in a row of unusual learning, this Autumn will probably feel like a breath of fresh air. All things considered, teachers, students, and administrators will most likely get familiar with a new normal rather than returning to a long-awaited back to normal. And this doesn’t necessarily mean bad news.

Technology has surely allowed schools and teachers to overcome several challenges of the remote learning scenario. Plus, it has proven to be particularly effective in supporting students during such a challenging period. The demand for digital classrooms significantly increased in the past year, setting in motion a major revolution in the educational landscape. The “age of remote learning” taught us several valuable lessons we mustn’t forget as we approach the new academic year.

Many definitions defined artificial intelligence since the theory of AI comes on the surface. However, it keeps changing with time, but the definitions are generally used to describe AI. Likewise, AI is a study of developing intelligent systems and machines. Moreover, the devices can work and behave like humans. There are plenty of machines that have been designed in an approach of AI. There are two types of AI weak AI, and the other one is strong AI.

Firstly, let's discuss weak AI, which is also known as narrow AI. It's an intelligence that performs some specific task. It allows building some special applications. Some applications have been developed in weak AI logic, For instance, Apple Siri and Amazon Alexa.

Secondly, strong AI or you can call it artificial superintelligence. It promotes the idea of a machine to perform equal to the human. Similarly, this machine is equipped with self-aware consciousness, which can think, behave, and resolve issues like humans, such as science fiction, the superhuman, or a supercomputer.

Moreover, AI also refers to terms like Machine learning and Deep learning, but they are not the same. Meanwhile, ML is a subdivision of AI and DL is a sub-region of ML. ML is the most familiar type of AI. The essential use of ML is to transfer data quickly.

Similarly, mobile application development for e-learning is a path of the future that keeps evolving. Every mobile application development company is keen on learning AI and including it in their app developing strategy.

Meanwhile, AI can be learning as a machine that has a consciousness and problem-solving sense resemble approaches like humans. These attributes make it separate from other devices.

As a teacher, what would you give to have a few extra hours in your workweek for yourself? A few extra hours during which you can put your feet up and complete that novel you've been working on for months.

This sounds like a dream that may never come true unless you discover a magical lamp with a genie trapped inside it. Nevertheless, thanks to technology, this dream is gradually coming to life.

In today's world, educational robots are a phenomenon that's rapidly infiltrating the educational system. More and more teachers are integrating robotics into STEM classes and even art lessons, making the learning process more seamless and fun.

However, this educational revolution offers other benefits for overworked teachers. Recent studies have shown that robotics in education can help teachers save time, and we'll show you how in a bit.
