オランダ世界大会でのジュニア国際ワークショップの案内

ジュニアワークショップとは?

昨年度から,世界大会の会期中に,ジュニアの参加者関係者を対象とする国際ワークショップを開催しています。教育実践者,研究者,そしてチームのみなさんも,自分たちの教育実践の成果や研究成果を発表することができます。このワークショップには,世界大会に選抜されていないチームでも参加することが可能です。世界大会に参加し,チームの成果を発表するもう一つの方法として活用してください。

Workshop on Educational Robotics

(an event co-located with the RoboCup Symposium 2013)

Eindhoven, the Netherlands
http://www.robocup2013.org/ 

1st July, 2013


The use of robotics for educational purposes has been pursued for a long time and has become more and more popular. Several factors have contributed to such situation, such as the availability of adequate and inexpensive robotics kits in the market and individual components, as well as the proliferation of robotics competitions for the pre-university levels. As a consequence, robotics started to be incorporated into classroom lessons and has become a learning tool for teaching concepts in a broad range of areas, from electricity and mechanisms to programming, mathematics, physics, etc.

In this workshop, we aim at bringing together teachers, mentors, and students from schools, clubs, community centers, and educational institutions offering formal and informal educational opportunities in robotics, to discuss their experiences and the current practices using robotics. This workshop hopes to also provide a place to share relevant projects and discuss specific technical issues that may arise in different learning setting as well as the impact of robotics in education.

Some examples of topics of particular interest to this symposium are:

- impact of robotics in the learning process
- impact of educational robotics in the community
- school projects involving robotics
- specific use of robots to demonstrate scientific concepts
- techniques to build robots
- use of sensors
- showcase of students (teams) accomplishment with robotics, especially with RoboCupJunior leagues


Types of presentations are:

- hands-on experience to introduce or teach new robotics ideas/tools (2-3 hrs)

- mentor/teacher presentation of their practice (20-30 min)

- students/team presentation of their accomplishment (showcase, 20-30 min)

Important dates:
- submissions deadline: May 25, 2013
- notification of acceptance: May 30, 2013
- submission of final version: June 06, 2013

Submissions:
Please, write a brief text explaining your presentation. It can be from a single page to a maximum of 6 pages. All submitted papers must be written in English, in single column and following the template that you can find under "Author Guidelines" in http://www.springer.com/series/1244. We will print all accepted contributions and provide them to the workshop participants at the event as well as post them on the RoboCupJunior website.

Once your paper is ready to be submitted, please, send it by email directly to the workshop organizers (Amy Eguchi - amy_eguchi [AT] bloomfield.edu and Luis Almeida - lda [AT] fe.up.pt).

If you have registered for RoboCupJunior, you will have access to the Symposium and to this workshop. Otherwise, if you wish to do a presentation in the workshop but are not registered for RoboCupJunior or RoboCup then you need to register for the RoboCup Symposium, which will also grant access to the co-located events such as this workshop.

Below, you can find presentations from last year's werob.
