Abstract

6E learning model has used in a learner-centered teaching model that enhances students' motivation and learning outcomes. Robot education combines a lot of the knowledge and skills of a variety of learning areas to enhance student understanding and validation through the 6E learning model, and allows students to learn computational thinking through robotics. This research is aimed at 70 senior students in an elementary school. The Arduino robot is designed and assembled through practical curriculum. This study used experimental design with two different groups: 6E learning mode and general learning mode. The research found that using the 6E learning mode would enhance students’ motivation and computational thinking performance in the robotic practice curriculum, and enhance the use of learners in practical operations.
