Robotics, Education, and Sustainable Development
– The growing demand for technological innovation to enable empowerment of developing communities requires new and creative educational initiatives. Thus, well designed higher educational initiatives geared towards appropriate technology for developing communities can have a significant global impact. This paper presents the challenges and benefits of three higher education initiatives in Sri Lanka, Ghana, and the USA that focus on innovating and implementing relevant technology for developing communities. The authors examine the potential intersections of robotics and its component technologies with education and sustainable development. The paper concludes with an assessment of factors that contribute to the success of higher educational initiatives designed to enable technology relevant to developing communities.
