The Principles of Educational Robotic Applications (ERA): A framework for understanding and developing educational robots and their activities

Abstract

The original educational robots were the Logo Turtles. They derived their rationale from constructionism. How has this changed? This paper postulates ten principles that underpin the effective utilisation of robotic devices within education settings. We argue that they form a framework still sympathetic to constructionism that can guide the development, application and evaluation of educational robots. They articulate a summary of the existing knowledge as well as suggesting further avenues of research that may be shared by educationists and designers. The principles also provide an evaluative framework for Educational Robotic Applications (ERA). This paper is an overview of the ideas, which we will develop in future papers.

This paper was first published at Constructionism 2012.

Naace Annual Report 2011

This report covers the period for the financial year July 2010 to end of June 2011; this report will be reviewed at the AGM taking place on 10 March 2012 at the Naace Annual Conference to be held at the Leicester Marriot Hotel from 8 to 10 March 2012.

Over the past year Naace has pursued activities that focus around the needs of members with particular emphasis on supporting colleagues facing radical changes in their work patterns and environment. The closure of Becta has forced an increase in the need for collaboration and presented opportunities for greater engagement with Government and other organisations. Each activity is based around the central theme of delivering professional services to members and the wider community, and complements strategies of the DfE and other home countries.

Tablets and their use for effective teaching and learning

 - click for full size image
Tablets are becoming increasingly common tools in schools. There's a wealth of options available, a range of web apps or apps designed for different operating systems and so many choices for teachers and students to make that it is sometimes useful to know the range of ways that they are making a difference across a range of different subject areas. Though this range can't be exhaustive or final, given the early stages of widespread adoption, it will provide a starting point for those aiming to use these tools to enhance learning through appropriate and effective use of the technologies available. Check out the draft guidelines from UNESCO for use of tablets and the suggestions made by one of our sponsoring partners.
