About K-12 Robotic Toolkits
Robotic toolkits are small- or medium-sized robot tool sets that are increasingly being used in the global K-12 market mainly for teaching STEM subjects. The use of robotic toolkits in the K-12 sector is a transformational tool for learning, computational thinking, coding, and engineering. These toolkits are increasingly being viewed as critical ingredients for STEM learning in the K-12 education sector. They are increasingly being used to engage and educate students, especially those opting for science and engineering fields.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global k-12 robotic toolkits market to grow at a CAGR of 20.59% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global k-12 robotic toolkits market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers new sales of robotic toolkits in the K-12 sector.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global K-12 Robotic Toolkits Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global k-12 robotic toolkits market: EZ-Robot, LEGO Education, Makeblock, and Modular Robotics.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Raspberry Pi Foundation, Sphero, Valiant, VEX Robotics, and Wonder Workshop.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is advent of virtual robotic toolkits. The increase in the virtualization of content has brought about a dynamic shift in the global K-12 robotic toolkits market. This has resulted in the shift from traditional robotic toolkits to virtual robotic toolkits. Virtual robotic toolkits is a STEM-based educational toolkit. They are used to teach both the students and teachers the fundamentals of engineering, coding, and 3-D design in a simulated environment.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing student engagement through experiential learning. Robotic toolkits enhance the learning experience of students. In this technique of learning, students are required to interact with pre-programmed robots that help them understand the various concept of STEM and other educations. Students are increasingly motivated to engage in activities such as tinkering, building, sharing ideas, building, developing, and designing prototypes or models for new products. Most of the toolkits also require students to engage in Learning by Doing concept.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is resistance to inclusion of robotic toolkits in classrooms. In many schools, educators have refused to comply with the inclusion of robotic toolkits in classrooms. Educational robotic tools have brought about a change in the educational equilibrium. This is because robots are increasingly being used to teach students in classrooms. It is observed that while the students enjoy the sessions, there is a heavy resilience on the part of instructors. This can be further substantiated by using virtual robotics kits.
