Williams, Douglas; Ma, Yuxin; Prejean, Louise – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 2010
Educational robotics activities are gaining in popularity. Though some research data suggest that educational robotics can be an effective approach in teaching mathematics, science, and engineering, research is needed to generate the best practices and strategies for designing these learning environments. Existing robotics activities typically do…

Silva, E.; Almeida, J.; Martins, A.; Baptista, J. P.; Campos Neves, B. – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2013
Robotics research in Portugal is increasing every year, but few students embrace it as one of their first choices for study. Until recently, job offers for engineers were plentiful, and those looking for a degree in science and technology would avoid areas considered to be demanding, like robotics. At the undergraduate level, robotics programs are…

Souza, Marcos A. M.; Duarte, José R. R. – Physics Education, 2015
In this paper, we propose some of the strategies and methodologies for teaching high-school physics topics through an educational robotics show. This exhibition was part of a set of actions promoted by a Brazilian government program of incentive for teaching activities, whose primary focus is the training of teachers, the improvement of teaching…

Rihtaršic, David; Avsec, Stanislav; Kocijancic, Slavko – International Journal of Technology and Design Education, 2016
The purpose of this paper is to investigate whether the experiential learning of electronics subject matter is effective in the middle school open learning of robotics. Electronics is often ignored in robotics courses. Since robotics courses are typically comprised of computer-related subjects, and mechanical and electrical engineering, these…

Bakke, Christine K. – ProQuest LLC, 2013
The purpose of this study is to examine whether participation in robotics provides opportunities for educational and professional skill development, significant enough to merit the recommendation of robotics courses as a part of mainstream curriculum offerings in K-12 schools. This non-experimental, mixed methods study examined current junior high…

Leonard, Jacqueline; Barnes-Johnson, Joy; Mitchell, Monica; Unertl, Adrienne; Stubbe, Christopher R.; Ingraham, Latanya – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2017
This research report presents the final year results of a three-year research project on computational thinking (CT). The project, funded by the National Science Foundation, involved training teachers in grades four through six to implement Scalable Game Design and LEGO® EV3 robotics during afterschool clubs. Thirty teachers and 531 students took…

Phamduy, Paul; Leou, Mary; Milne, Catherine; Porfiri, Maurizio – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2017
Informal science learning aims to improve public understanding of STEM. Free-choice learners can be engaged in a wide range of experiences, ranging from watching entertaining educational videos to actively participating in hands-on projects. Efforts in informal science learning are often gauged by their ability to elicit interaction, to foster…

Elkin, Mollie; Sullivan, Amanda; Bers, Marina Umaschi – Journal of Information Technology Education: Innovations in Practice, 2014
This paper explores how robotics can be used as a new educational tool in a Montessori early education classroom. It presents a case study of one early educator's experience of designing and implementing a robotics curriculum integrated with a social science unit in her mixed-age classroom. This teacher had no prior experience using robotics in…

Verma, Geeta; Puvirajah, Anton; Webb, Horace – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2015
While the science classroom primarily remains a site for knowledge acquisition through teacher directed experiences, other sites exist outside of the classroom that allow for student generation of scientific knowledge. These sites provide opportunities for linguistic and social interactions to play a powerful role in situating students'…
