Mioduser, David; Levy, Sharona T.; Talis, Vadim – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2009
This study explores young children's abstraction of the rules underlying a robot's emergent behavior. The study was conducted individually with six kindergarten children, along five sessions that included description and construction tasks, ordered by increasing difficulty. We developed and used a robotic control interface, structured as…

Levy, Sharona T.; Mioduser, David – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2008
This study investigates young children's perspectives in explaining a self-regulating mobile robot, as they learn to program its behaviors from rules. We explore their descriptions of a robot in action to determine the nature of their explanatory frameworks: psychological or technological. We have also studied the role of an adult's intervention…

Kuperman, Asi; Mioduser, David – Interdisciplinary Journal of E-Learning and Learning Objects, 2012
In recent years, children from a kindergarten in central Israel have been exposed to learning experiences in technology as part of the implementation of a curriculum based on technological thinking, including topics related to behaving-adaptive-artifacts (e.g., robots). This study aims to unveil children's stance towards behaving artifacts:…

Mioduser, David; Levy, Sharona T. – International Journal of Computers for Mathematical Learning, 2010
This study explores young children's ability to construct and explain adaptive behaviors of a behaving artifact, an autonomous mobile robot with sensors. A central component of the behavior construction environment is the RoboGan software that supports children's construction of spatiotemporal events with an a-temporal rule structure. Six…
