In the context of the science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics disciplines in education, subjects tend to use contextualized activities or projects. Educational robotics and computational thinking both have the potential to become subjects in their own right, though not all educational programs yet offer these. Despite the use of tech...

The emergence of Web 2.0 has not only changed the available Web technologies, but also the way people communicate and relate to one another; technology is continuously impacting society and the behaviour of individuals. The growing ubiquity of Web access, and the variety of devices that allow us to interact with it, have made it possible for learne...
Conference Paper
One of the objectives of the introduction of educational robotics in the schools is the need to adapt the curriculum of the technology to the today’s requirements of the students and the development of the skills, competencies and disciplines involved of STEAM. In this paper cover related aspects of the computational thinking, the engineering think...

In this paper we propose a businessification approximation to measure and analyse students' engagement in a gamified learning context. Gamification in education is used to enhance students experience and improve learning outcomes. Its technics such as points, leaderboard, badges or ranking are also used in learning instructions with the aim to impr...

Nowadays, the curricular needs of the students from Vocational Training have to adapt to all kinds of content in order to improve their future professional integration. In this sense, the technology knowledge is essential in any work environment. However, the introduction of these curricular features in certain non-technological academic areas may...
Conference Paper
Starting university studies in the field of engineering represents a significant change of habits of study for the majority of students. Throughout this new educational stage, the work of the academic tutor (or advisor) is essential for guiding and accompanying the student. This process should help to prevent problems such as the frustration and in...
Conference Paper
This paper aims to provide the theoretical framework and methodology for the definition of data collection tools designed to assess the effectiveness and impact of training envisaged by the LEARNING4WORK project. This project is based on the development of learning strategies within the framework of Vocation Training, in order to improve learning p...

Resumen La ludificación es una estrategia pedagógica que se caracteriza por utilizar las técnicas, elementos y dinámicas de los juegos en actividades ajenas a estos. Para utilizarla en un entorno educativo no existen procedimientos estándar que funcionen siempre. Hay parámetros como los currículos, el perfil de los alumnos, los profesores o los rec...
Article
This paper presents a mixed-method study that combines quantitative and qualitative techniques to evaluate the technological profile and the motivation and satisfaction of Multimedia Engineering degree students using augmented visualization methods. New uses of technology in the education framework have been extended to all levels and sectors, but...

La informática está presente y es el motor de la innovación en todos los campos de la ciencia y tecnología, además de ser una parte fundamental de la sociedad actual. Ninguna otra disciplina ha evolucionado tanto de una forma tan rápida, ni ha tenido tanta influencia en la calidad de vida de las personas. La informática es probablemente, junto con...
Conference Paper
Many of the new teaching methods that currently exist are based on collaborative learning. Indeed, cooperative work adds value to the processes of teaching and learning, allowing the acquisition of the Key Skills with greater ease and effectiveness. One of the fundamental factors to implement these methodologies based on cooperative work is the def...
Conference Paper
In this paper we present the new version of the LSMaker Robot, an educational platform designed by La Salle - Ramon Llull University to be used as facilitator of acquisition of concepts in all engineering curricula and, at the same time, a new companion as a robotic classmate. The new version of the LSMaker, named LSMaker EV1, changes from a full c...
Conference Paper
Online teaching courses are becoming an appealing alternative to traditional in-class learning methods, therefore driving practitioners to explore new strategies for delivering contents to an overwhelming number of students. Nevertheless, migrating face-to-face learning methodologies to an online teaching environment is certainly challenging. More...
Article
Teaching methods based on lectures often result in student passivity rather than pro-activity with the only goal of the student being to pass the final exam. Consequently, content retention is temporary and true learning is not achieved. Lack of student motivation can be solved by using Active Learning methodologies: serious games, Project-Based Le...
Conference Paper
In this paper we present an educational resource called LSMaker, a caterpillar mobile robot that has been introduced in the curricula of Engineering Education. The platform has been used to link subjects, so common tasks and challenges have been defined. We are looking for updating contents and educational methodology, enhancing the motivation of s...
Conference Paper
Learning and teaching methods at universities are under a constant review process as long as students' goals and profiles are continuously changing. In the recent years, several pragmatic teaching approaches have been proposed aimed at enhancing the global learning process (i.e., learning by doing). Apparently, these novel learning techniques are a...
Conference Paper
Current intelligent tutoring systems are focused on the learning process of students without taking into account interactions with the rest of their classmates, i.e., considering each student as an isolated individual. This paper proposes a new approach, called Intelligent Tutoring of Virtual Learning Communities (ITVLC), able to enhance the learni...
Conference Paper
This paper aims to show the need to apply new teaching methods that enable effective learning in the teacher training in the current education system. The immersion in Information and Communications technology (ICT) must play an important role in this training because it is an absolutely essential tool for the implementation of these methodologies....
