  1. 1. Robotics as Means to Increase Achievement Scores in an Informal Learning Environment<br />Bradley S. Barker and John Ansorge<br />University of Nebraska-Lincoln<br />Ansorge, J. & Barker, B. (2007). University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Robotics as Means to Increase Achievement Scores in an Informal Learning Environment from http://www.education.rec.ri.cmu.edu/content/educators/research/files/Robotics%20As%20Means%20To%20Increase%20Achievement%20Score.pdf<br />Karina Liles | May 18, 2011 | EDET780 | Critique #1<br />
  2. 2. Research Question<br />What is the impact of the robotics instruction in promoting student learning in science, engineering, and technology (SET) for youth ages nine to eleven in an afterschool program?<br />What is the validity and reliability of the assessment instrument developed for this study?<br />
  3. 3. Background<br />Robotics = Student Achievement<br />The United States’ economy is highly dependent on advanced technology.<br />
  4. 4. Overview of Study<br />Nebraska Elementary School<br />4-H Afterschool Program<br />Robotics Curriculum<br />
  5. 5. Kolb’s Experimental Learning Theory<br />Experience<br />Do the activity<br />Share<br />Reactions and observations in a social context<br />Process<br />Analyze and reflect upon what happened<br />Generalize<br />Discover what was learned and connect to life<br />Apply<br />What was learned to a similar or different situation<br />From the constructivism viewpoint, learning is an active, contextualized process of constructing knowledge rather than acquiring it.<br />

  7. 7. Participants<br />
  8. 8. Results<br />
  9. 9. Instrument Validation<br />The assessment instrument was the pre and posttest given to the students participating in the study<br />Two robotics experts validated the questions used in the instrument. <br />The Cronbach’s alpha results and the KR20 score both indicated that the instrument was reliable.<br />
