Within the framework of the line of work “Suma Tu Escuela” of the School of Robotics in Misiones, training is being given to teachers throughout the province, in all its levels and modalities, of urban and rural schools. They began within the framework of the 1st awareness day of the Suma tu Escuela 2019 line that was held last Wednesday at the School of Robotics with the presence of Lic. Alejandro Piscitelli. The methodology of work of the School of Robotics and the objectives of the implementation of Suma tu Escuela were explained in detail and dynamic activities were also carried out.
The training sessions are held simultaneously in different locations throughout the province. In relation to its impact, at the primary level, 31 teachers were trained in 25 de Mayo, 63 in Apostoles, 39 in Candelaria, 216 in Capital, 40 in Concepción de la Sierra, 33 in Eldorado, 66 in General Manuel Belgrano , 45 in Lib. General. San Martín, 53 in Guaraní, 74 in Iguazú, 75 in San Ignacio, 65 in Leandro N. Alem, 63 in Montecarlo, 66 in Oberá, 29 in San Pedro, 31 in San Javier and 39 in Cainguás.

The “Sumá tu Escuela” project of the School of Robotics, involves situated educational activities, oriented to accompany the transformation of the educational system. With proposals that propose technology as a cross-cutting axis, that is, as a set of tools that, associated with different didactic-pedagogical strategies and methodologies, incorporate planning, projects, or cuts in the environment, generating more powerful learning situations. Through this initiative, educational robotics will be implemented in the classrooms throughout the province, taking advantage of the multidisciplinary nature, in order to generate learning environments in which students can imagine, design and build solutions with programming and robotics to face problems of the real world and its close environment. Various methodologies are used, all of them oriented to collaborative work and the development of STEAM skills in order to promote teaching and learning in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics and their application in the different scenarios and life situations. Among the various methodologies implemented this journey, Project Based Learning is one of the key teaching models.
The training will continue until November and it is expected to reach more than 800 teachers in the next meetings. While the training for initial level will begin soon
