VASSILIS KOMIS, ANASTASIA MISIRLI

Abstract

This article consist an analysis of educational robotics environments for early childhood and first primary education. Firstly generally presented a problematic for the role of these environments in educational contexts for young children and examined the main research in the area. Then it is developed a framework of didactical analysis of two main categories of educational robotics environments: a) building competencies when constructing and robots and b) constructing computational thinking. Finally, based on this framework the most known educational robotics environments are analysed.

Keywords

Educational robotics, visual programming, didactical analysis, early childhood education, computational thinking
