Title 14 Interdisciplinary approach benefits
Marketing Text Summer school evaluation can partially discover meaning of interdisciplinary approach. Deeper insight is visible in schools with interdisciplinary approach elements in curricula.
Description INFIRO project starts with clear idea of laboratory implementation of technical education from electronic, robotics and mechatronic field. Slovenian partner has long experience related technical education. They notify strong educational potential especially from modern robotics. Today informatics oriented learning becomes very common. Fundamental knowledge from field of physics, mathematics and chemistry looks to modern students like old fashioned knowledge with tedious background, although deeper understanding of the nature and it ecological aspects is strongly related with fundamental natural sciences. On the other side faculty of science is for years struggling with lack of interests for fundamental natural sciences. Particularly physics is very important for true understanding of robot movement and mechatronics. Partner P6-Faculty of science during project productive period tried to use high educational potential of robotics for in parallel learning deep physical principles of electricity and magnetism
Target group Students, Schools, Teachers
Result Vocational schools very often has no suitable physics curriculum, but even if physics education is present in education scheme students usually not connecting electrical phenomena shared in physics, electronics and robotics. Even tiny implementation of interdisciplinary methodology can make whole educational process more meaningful to students, resulting with better and active knowledge.
Area of application Education, vocational schools
