A Robotics Learning Environment for a Physics Laboratory in Secondary Schools with Support to Teachers

More and more studies support the use of educational robotics and its positive impact on students’ performance and attitudes. These studies also emphasize that it is important to support the teachers when using robotics in traditional classrooms. However, learning activities with robotics are usually separated from the official curriculum and the environments that allow their use do
not provide any assessment of the students’ learning outcomes. Therefore, it seems relevant to provide teachers with tools that allow them to use robotics in traditional classrooms. In doing that, these tools should also provide assessment mechanisms to support them in the evaluation of the students’ progress.
