Summary / Abstract:

ENModern learning environment may be developed by using innovative tools and methods, e.g. robotics. Benefits and efficiency of robotics in teaching and learning processes have recently been drawing an increasing focus among researchers. Application of robotics is useful for students while studying Computer Engineering and other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects. The article pursues twofold research aim: (1) to perform systematic review of the literature on application of educational robots in schools in order to identify the experience in use of robotics in primary, basic and secondary schools, and (2) to conduct empirical study in Lithuania on the attitude towards use of robotic technologies in education, the related experience and demand, and identify the causes of low use of robotics in teaching and learning. Systematic literature review has shown that robotics has been paving its way as a teaching aid in a more intensive and flexible manner. The findings of empirical study have demonstrated the potential in use of robotic technologies and current related implications in Lithuanian schools. [eLABa]
