Opportunities of Educational Robotics for The Formation of Creative Abilities of High School Students (based on the Analysis of Russian and Foreign Experience)

The article is devoted to the study of the educational robotics' potential, capable of ensuring the formation of students’ creative abilities. Particular attention is paid to the use of modern means of robotics within the framework of a developing subject-oriented learning environment (based on mechatronics, a set of case studies, etc.), the use of educational robotics as part of STEM education, and project activities that ensure the targeted development of students’ creative abilities. The aim of the work is to develop methods of teaching robotics, aimed at developing the creative potential of students. As a result of the work based on the analysis of Russian and foreign experience in implementing educational programs of this kind aimed at developing creativity through robotics, the conditions for the application of innovative teaching methods for understanding the meta-subject and interdisciplinary content of educational robotics are substantiated. The conclusion is made according to which the use of robotics for the development of children's creative abilities in the framework of school and further education, as well as the search for a method of using robotics in the educational process, can be considered as relevant areas of modern pedagogical research, including the sphere of developing theoretical foundations of communication technology in education.
