TEEM 2015 Call for Papers

7-9 October 2015, Porto, Portugal http://teemconference.eu

Track 3: A Robot in the Classroom


Robotics in Education tries to strengthen different skills for future engineers/scientists by the means of the design, construction and programming of robots. These skills are related to various ?elds like science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Also, and equally important, the introduction of the robot in the classroom, both at school and college and even as extracurricular activity, promotes a host of outcomes such as technological ?uency, creativity, participation, support, collaboration and cooperation.

The purpose of this track is to bring together researchers, teachers and practitioners interested in the Robotics in Education. This track intends to emphasize the exchange of experiences, methodologies and materials to motivate students about science and technology.



* Experiences with new teaching materials
* Web-based materials, virtual worlds and simulation
* Open source material
* Laboratory experiments in educational robotics
* Teaching Methodology
* Design of educational projects with robotics
* Pilot studies in educational robotics
* Robotics in school
* Development of Curriculum in robotics at the University
* Experimental evaluation of hardware and software platforms
* Free and printable Robots
* Competitions as motivation activities

Papers Format

All contributions (5-8 pages) will be written following the ACM template (http:// www.acm.org/sigs/publications/pubform.doc) and should apply ACM Computing Classi?cation categories and terms.
