The EDUROBOTICS 2016 Int. Conference builds on the pedagogical theories of constructivism and constructionism (Piaget, Papert) and this year focuses on “Educational Robotics in the Makers Era”. With this as a central theme, the conference aims at positioning educational robotics in the Makers Era, identifying connections with digital fabrication and maker movement, and exploring how educational robotics can trigger the development of skills in STEAM, develop technological interest, creative thinking, collaborative, and problem solving skills – skills that are essential in the workplace of the 21st century.
We cordially invite academics, researchers and educators active in the field of educational robotics at all levels of education (primary, secondary and tertiary), including young researchers, PhD and post-graduate students to submit their papers or posters.
