Chapter
Robotics in education (RiE) covers a variety of applications of robots to the world of teaching and learning. Despite all the benefits that robotics can bring to education, a clear definition of the purpose for introducing robotics in education is still missing. Authors aim at facing this issue proposing a classification of RiE experiences, stating...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents the design of an assessment process and its outcomes to investigate the impact of Educational Robotics activities on students' learning. Through data analytics techniques, the authors will explore the activities' output from a pedagogical and quantitative point of view. Sensors are utilized in the context of an Educational Robot...
Article
This article describes an example of data mining techniques applied to an open educational environment. These novel assessment methods in the educational robotics (ER) field provide empirical evidence of problem-solving styles behind the key tasks of proposed activities within real operative scenarios. A supervised, mixed machine learning (ML) appr...
Conference Paper
Educational Robotics (ER) is a powerful tool to help students learn school subjects, robotics, and developing cognitive skills and soft skills. Assessing the learning outcomes of ER activities requires the identification of the model that underly the process. Machine learning can be useful to identify such models and to interpret data. This paper a...
Chapter
In recent years, there has been a stronger than ever need in Italy for teacher training in digital skills and pedagogical and teaching innovations. This is also due to an increase in national funds and European resources available for innovation in the field of education. This paper first describes the main innovations in learning that are made pos...
Chapter
Many researchers and teachers agree that the inclusion of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in early education provides strong motivation and greatly improves the speed of learning. Most primary school curricula include a number of concepts that cover science and mathematics, but less effort is placed in teaching problem-solving, co...
Chapter
This paper presents the preliminary results of using machine learning techniques to analyze educational robotics activities. An experiment was conducted with 197 secondary school students in Italy: the authors updated Lego Mindstorms EV3 programming blocks to record log files with coding sequences students had designed in teams. The activities were...
Chapter
In a constructionist environment, robotics engagingly teaches traditional concepts, while applying them to compelling real-world problems. Educational robotics can help students develop soft skills, like teamwork, and improve the way they relate to each other. Researchers in different disciplines have devoted many efforts to exploring this dimensio...

L’Intelligenza Artificiale (AI) sta diventando sempre più pervasiva nella nostra società: la maggior parte delle applicazioni tecnologiche commerciali utilizzate quotidianamente sfruttano queste tecniche per ottimizzare l’esperienza degli utenti, e si stanno facendo investimenti molto consistenti per mettere a punto sistemi che possano reagire ed a...
Thesis
Full-text available
This dissertation aims to provide the results through the utilisation of data mining and machine learning techniques for the assessment with Educational Robotics (ER). This research work has three main objectives: identify different patterns in the students’ problem-solving trajectories; predict the students’ team final performance, with a particu...
Chapter
Digital skills are becoming increasingly central to the educational policy of every country and educational systems are facing new challenges in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. All pupils should gain the knowledge, skills and competences they need, as they determine an individual’s chance to succeed in the future labour market and to h...
Article
Full-text available
Educational Robotics is rapidly gaining attention as an effective methodology to develop skills and engage students preserving their peculiar style of learning. It is often tied together with two other methodologies, Coding and Tinkering, characterized by a similar hands-on approach. In order to fully exploit their inclusive features, teachers need...

In the future boys and girls will be employed in, and maybe create, new jobs connected with technology. We present a project whose aim was to raise interest in STEM education in K12 students and, in particular, to address the lack of participation of female students in STEM careers. For this reason, in September 2017, 20 students (12 girls and 8 bo...
Conference Paper

Since the acronym STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) was firstly introduced by the US National Science Foundation to bring technology and engineering into regular K-12 curriculum, Robotics has proven itself to be the sum of STEM disciplines. This paper presents an extra-curricular experience held in a formal environment with the a...

This paper presents an innovative approach to alternating School- Work turnover programme based on Educational Robotics and on project-based learning. At the beginning of the year 2017 (from January to April), Liceo Volta-Fellini of Riccione proposed a STEM practical activity to its own students as a School-Work turnover programme. This course of R...

Negli ultimi anni, grazie anche all’incremento dei fondi nazionali ed europei disponibili per l’innovazione del settore didattico, è nata l’esigenza di formazione dei docenti in tema di competenze digitali e di innovazione pedagogico-didattica: tema particolarmente sentito nel contesto italiano. L’articolo presenta le principali innovazioni per l’a...
