Line of Action
In a world where innovation and massive use of technology is part of daily activity, the School of Robotics brings a proposal of incorporation and appropriation of it, by means of 4.0 EFA Program. This Program incorporates elements of Ag tech and Agro Robotics, through naturalization and Intensification of ICT, Educational Robotics, Programming and Electronics, in the development of school activities typical of an agricultural school; understanding and addressing their particularities and needs that characterize them.
Beneficiaries are Students who are in 3rd and 4th year at Secondary school, and teachers of EFA 4.0 associated with the EFA program goals.
As regards Educational objectives it is proposed to ensure equal opportunities through education of quality, free, focused on strengthening technological knowledge and innovation applied to the agro productive chain, promote maker culture, by developing projects using disruptive methodology and encourage the development of vocations related to technical and agronomic training of student of the EFA.
The Technological objectives are updating agricultural production processes through automation of productive tasks. Incorporate and develop digital management applications to control agricultural activities.
Rural Development objectives are intended to promote maker culture, by developing AgTech projects that have the potential to be scalable in different rural communities, encourage the development of agricultural communities in the province of Misiones, with education for the future, enabling improve quality of life, with use of sustainable resource.
And the last one, the socioeconomic objectives revalidate the socio-economic importance and cultural value of the EFA, promoting the roots of youth agricultural community.
El proceso se diagrama en un ámbito integral y multidisciplinario, con cimientos en el trabajo colaborativo de equipos, mediante el acompañamiento y asistencia de los Facilitadores de la Escuela de Robótica.
The applied methodology is Project-based learning (PBL) where students take on an active role, in which come into play exchange of ideas, creativity and collaboration. This method involves the construction of a project where Students will develop the desired skills.
The learning of knowledge and skills are understood as a progressive process, where two stages are presented, one related to introductory and basic knowledge(Step-1 Initial), and a second representing an advanced instance (stage-2 Advanced).Each stage has duration of one year in the calendar school.
Students will be in a stage where they have to form teams, position themselves in roles and develop skills such as effective communication, good organization, teamwork, critical thinking, with ease of adaptation to changes.
The methodology involves learning and virtual instances in which students will develop specific content and implementation activities.
These face meetings will be developed in two classes each month, with modules of 2 hours, they will have theoretical / practical modality.
This aim of this project is to implement robotics in Schools of Agricultural Families of the province and, on the other hand, to respond to an imperative of time as is the need to create a space in which forming conditions of learning skills are strengthened as well as content and information management, communication, social, cultural practices, creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem solving, independent learning and continuous updating.
Moreover, this project seeks to modernize and improve the processes of agricultural production through automation of production tasks; incorporate and develop digital management applications to control agricultural activities.
To this end, a strategic plan was developed to promote and enhance the quality of education of students of these institutions from new disruptive pedagogical models incorporating technology and learning electronics, programming and robotics, to develop skills such as critical thinking, creativity, innovation, leadership and problem solving.
In addition, the EFA 4.0 Program sensitizes students of agricultural schools in AG TECH applied to their daily school life and their home life, from the generation of technology by students and teachers of the institutions that emerged from problems of their everyday lives and find an alternative solution using robotics, design and innovation.
