11th Workshop of Robotics in Education | Online Event | November, 11-13th, 2020


11th Workshop of Robotics in Education (WRE 2020)

Robotics motivates and inspires people of all ages and education levels. In fact, many researchers have already shown that students get more interested and excited for learning several topics when robotics is involved in the learning process. As so, the use of robotics in education has gained great interest over the last decade. The Workshop of Robotics in Education is a forum for discussing scientifical, technical, educational, and other aspects about the usage of robotics in the learning process.
The 11th edition of the Workshop of Robotics in Education (WRE 2020), initially set to take place from 11th to 13th of November in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil, is maintained. In the context of the COVID-19 outbreak, please note that we have decided to organise the event using technical sessions on the web, including oral (or video) presentations of the papers on the same period (11-13th of November 2020).

Conference topics of interest are, but not limited to:
  • Robotics at school
  • Robotics teachers formation
  • Robotics competitions
  • Educational robotics platforms
  • Robotics in informal teaching (extra class)
  • Study cases
  • Methodologies and materials for teaching
  • Web based robotics
  • Educational robotics simulation
  • Robotics in education curricula
  • Low cost educational robots
  • Social robotics
  • Unplugged robotics
  • Computational thinking with Robotics
  • Robot-student interaction
  • STEM with Robotics Based Projects
  • Problem Based Learning with Robotics
  • Robot-student interaction

Paper preparation and submission:
Original articles with a maximum of 6 pages, including references and all figures are welcome. Papers can be written in English (preferably), Spanish, or Portuguese. Notice that only papers in English will appear at IEEE Xplore Proceedings (so we encourage submissions in English).
