4th Workshop of Robotics in Education (WRE 2013)
(A joint event with the Latin American Robotics Symposium - LARS 2013)

Robotics motivates and inspires people of all ages and education levels. Thus, many researchers have already shown that students get more interested and excited to learn several topics when robotics is involved in the learning process. As a result, the use of robotics on education has been gaining great interest over the last years. WRE is a forum to discuss technical, educational and other aspects of the usage of robotics in education.

The 4th Workshop of Robotics in Education (WRE 2013) will be held in October 2013 jointly with the Latin American Robotics Symposium (LARS). More information about LARS can be found on the website http://ucsp.edu.pe/lars2013/.

Conference topics of interest are (but not limited to):
  • Robotics at school
  • Robotics teachers formation
  • Robotics competitions
  • Educational robotics platforms
  • Robotics used for informal teaching (extra class)
  • Study cases
  • Methodologies and materials for teaching
  • Web based robotics
  • Educational robotics simulation
