General information

The change of teaching and learning practices is especially required in subjects that see low levels of learner interest and motivation, for example in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) subjects.

One of the ways of increasing interest towards subjects is using educational robots, designed especially for younger students and being used in classroom for the purposes of increasing learner interest towards the learning process.

It is assumed that the integration of robots also supports the change of teachers’ teaching and learning approach.

In this practical hands-on course, the participants will collaboratively create, test and share robot supported lesson plans, for a subject they have chosen, using for that widely used educational robotics platforms LEGO EV3, LEGO WeDo 2.0 and Edison.

No previous knowledge of robotics nor programming is needed to take part in the course. The crash course for programming the robots is included in the introductory part.


Tallinn Summer School arranges accommodation for foreign participants at student dormitory (5-minutes walk from the university, double and triple rooms).
