Robotics and Coding: STEM-PE
The third program discussed here is the latest in STEM applications, Robotics. Robotics has not only the obvious application of use in math and science classes, it has enormous applications in physical education to both motivate and engage young children to become physically active (figure 9.11). For students in secondary school it provides an opportunity to learn programming or coding to use various movements to teach anatomical analysis of motor skills. STEM-PE was rolled out at the 2017 Shape America National Convention & Expo during the 50 Million Strong advocacy session. The NAO Robot, named JAI, performs movements such as those shown in figure 9.12.
As you can see from these examples, there are many opportunities for physical educators to be creative and innovative in their use of technology for instructional purposes. The utilization of technology has no limits or parameters in educational planning, programming, and student engagement.
