By Education Technology Insights | Wednesday, October 23, 2019

The TED-Ed platform offers a video library and the opportunity to assemble and alter mechanical autonomy exercises for understudies.

FREMONT, CA: The education sector is moving to robotics from an old sci-fi concept to engage students in STEM learning by solving real-world problems. The TED-Ed platform is gaining popularity among educators and students; a variety of robotics-related videos is found here. After finding the appropriate video, the users can use the TED-Ed Lessons editor to add questions, discussion prompts, and additional resources.

Here are some robotics videos and lessons to get you started in the classroom:

1. Making a car for blind drivers:

A car can be made for blind drivers using robotics, laser rangefinders, GPS, and smart feedback tools. It is not a “self-driving” car, but a car in which a non-sighted driver can determine speed, proximity, and route–and drive independently.

2. Can robots be creative?

Individuals have been thinking about the subject of counterfeit innovativeness nearby the topic of human-made consciousness for more than 170 years. For example, might we be able to program machines to make excellent unique music? In addition, on the off chance that we do, is it the machine or the developer that shows imagination? Gil Weinberg researches this creative problem.

3. Mysteries of vernacular:

Robot: In 1920, Czech writer Karel Čapek composed a play about human-like machines, in this manner imagining the term robot from the Focal European word for constrained work. Jessica Oreck and Rachael Teel clarify how the sci-fi staple earned its name.

4. The Turing test:

Will a PC go for a human? What is awareness? Can a counterfeit machine genuinely think? For some, these have been fundamental contemplations for the eventual fate of human-made consciousness. In any case, English PC researcher Alan Turing chose to ignore every one of these inquiries for a lot more straightforward one: Can a PC talk like a human? Alex Gendler portrays the Turing test and subtleties a portion of its astounding outcomes.
