Resources are provided with this practice
This practice contains three of nine challenges for robotics social clubs.
Negotiating and resolving conflict is critical for successful relationships. In the Australian Curriculum, students develop personal and social capability as they learn to:
- listen to others' ideas
- recognise that others may see things differently from themselves
- practise how to solve simple interpersonal problems
- recognise a number of ways to resolve conflict.
The three robotics challenges in this practice target and scaffold students’ ability to negotiate and resolve conflict:
- Sumo building
- Sumo programming and testing
- Sumo battles
These challenges each take 1–2 sessions of approximately 45 minutes.
If you need to build a robot, begin with the starter challenge in the Communicate effectively: Robotics social clubs practice. You could also provide students with pre-made robots.
