Robotics Applications for the Curriculum to Reflect Technology.
Seaman, Virgil A.; Steck, Francis X.
This document contains suggestions for integrating the elements of robotics into technology education courses from elementary through junior high and high school levels. Eighteen courses into which robotics instruction can be incorporated are listed. They include the following: exploring industry and technology, introduction to industrial and technological systems, communication systems, electronic communication systems, construction systems, electromechanical systems and servicing, construction planning and design, constructing and servicing structures and systems, manufacturing systems, manufacturing materials and processes, product and production system design, manufacturing production systems, transportation systems, technical elements of transportation, planning and designing transportation systems, human and product transporting systems, research and development, and entrepreneurship. For each course title, grade level and size of school are given; robotics learning activities are detailed in a step-by-step fashion. A brief bibliography is included in the guide. (KC)
