RIE 2015 – Workshop 2 Best Approaches for introducing Children to Robots

Welcome to the Educational Robotics Cafe!

Recall a time when you had a great conversation where real learning or new insight occurred.

What enabled that to happen?

We invite you to the Educational Robotics Cafe, a workshop where our talks and discussions will build the base for a canvas of the educational robotics landscape – with its opportunities and threats.

In this landscape, four approaches  will be presented in the beginning of the workshop.

Then, we will explore questions that matter to us as educators or roboticists or both. All you need is to bring your experience with educational robotics to the café table and join the conversation
