Robotter i skolen og felten (LOM)

February 8, 2016

Tidsskriftet Læring og Medier (LOM) er ude med nyt temanummer om Robotter i skolen og Robotter i felten: http://ojs.statsbiblioteket.dk/index.php/lom/issue/view/3265.

Der er mange interessante artikler. Jeg har selv bidraget med en artikel om feltet autisme, robotteknologier: http://ojs.statsbiblioteket.dk/index.php/lom/article/view/22416.

Abstract dansk

Feltet robotteknologier og uddannelse er et mega-expansivt felt. I løbet af kun få år, internationalt og i Danmark, er fokus på uddannelsesrobotter og robotteknologi i uddannelse øget markant. 2015 NMC Technology Outlook rapporten tilbyder et teknologi udsyn i de skandinaviske lande, og her placeres robotteknologi og programmering inden for en fire-fem årig adoptionsperiode. I Danmark igangsætter mange kommuner forsøg med robotteknologi i skoler og dagtilbud, og der investeres i mange forskellige robotteknologier. Området uddannelse og robotteknologi involverer flere forskellige tilgange til udvikling af robotteknologi, nye uddannelsesmuligheder og til at understøtte børn og unge menneskers læring og udvikling. Artiklen diskuterer hvordan robot teknologier relateres som læringsressourcer til feltet autisme og uddannelse. Med fokus på børn og unge diagnosticeret med autisme spektrum forstyrrelser, deres it-interesser og engagementer i innovativ og kreativ læring, argumenterer artiklen for et behov for at udvide tilgangen til dette felt i fremtiden. Artiklen relaterer international forskningslitteratur med fokus på robotteknologi og uddannelse til empiriske eksempler fra forfatterens egen forskning i uddannelse for børn og unge diagnosticeret med autisme spektrum forstyrrelser. Det empiriske afsæt er her læreres og elevers interesser i at arbejde med it (fx robotteknologi).

Abstract engelsk

The field of robot technologies and education is rapidly evolving. Within only a few years, internationally and in Denmark, the focus on educational service robots and educational robotics has become more widespread. The 2015 NMC Technology Outlook report providing a technology outlook on Scandinavian schools places robotics and programming within a four to five year time-to-adoption period. At the moment in Denmark, many municipalities are initiating trials, investing in and engaging a diverse range of robot technologies in both daycare and schools. The field of education and robot technologies involves several very different educational approaches to supporting young people’s learning and development. The paper discusses how robot technologies as learning resources have been related to the field of autism and education, and argues for a need to further expand the areas of application in the future, with a focus on children and young people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, their ICT interests and engagement in innovative and creative learning. The paper draws on international research and examples from the author’s own research into education for children and young people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, drawing on teachers’ and the students’ interests in working with ICT (e.g. robot technology).

Technological literacy and innovation education – Designs for Learning 2014

May 5, 2014

VIOLI am really looking forward to be spending quality time with inspiring researcher colleagues at the Designs for Learning 2014 conference in Stockholm – 6.-9. maj 2014.

Friday I will be presenting some of my own research on “Technological literacy and innovation education – how new technologies changes and challenges the profession and the professional relationships”.

We look forward to receiving other people’s perspectives on our work. The paper presents research related to our large ongoing professional education development project at University College Zealand (UCSJ) in Denmark. The project is called Welfare Technology, Innovation, Care and Learning (In Danish: Projekt Velfærdsteknologi, Innovation, Omsorg og Læring). It runs from January 2013 December 2014, and includes developing welfare technology related teaching and learning practices in and across eight professional bachelor programs at UCSJ. The project’s ambition is to further develop educational programs in order to better raise students’ “technological literacy” – that is students acquiring “competencies for using, assessing, and innovating new welfare technological solutions in their professional field” (Source: Project application).
