In many educational institutions across the world, from elementary schools to colleges, robotics is being used as a rewarding and engaging tool to involve students in science and technology. However, an often raised criticism refers to the lack of a proper curriculum that could blend robotic experiments to more traditional course work. In this column, Prof. Dimitris Alimisis of the School of Pedagogical and Technological Education (Greece) reports on the experience of the European Project Teacher Education on Robotics-Enhanced Constructivist Pedagogical Methods (TERECoP). This project aims at providing teachers with the technical and educational background to use robotics in innovative courses, and to overcome the above criticism.
