This paper presents the European project " Teacher Education on Robotics-Enhanced Constructivist Pedagogical Methods " (TERECoP). A first premise of this project concerns the implementation of constructivist – constructionist methods not only in classroom, but in teacher education as well. A second premise is referred to the technology-enhanced learning as(More)
In this paper we argue about the need to develop an educational-evaluation model and a methodology that include usability testing as standard procedure capable to determine the impact of adaptation on learners' behavior in an educational environment. To this end, heuristic evaluation is modified and criteria that diagnose potential usability problems(More)
Designing tools that support group formation is a challenging goal for both the areas of adaptive and collaborative e-learning environments. Group formation may be used for a variety of purposes such as for grouping students that could potentially benefit from cooperation based on their individual characteristics or needs, for mediating peer help by(More)
This joint paper is based on cooperative work done by the TERECoP project partnership during the 3 years of the project (2006-09) and presents a constructivist methodology for teacher training in robotic technology and its implementation within the framework of teacher training courses. The courses gave teachers the chance to pass from their initial role of(More)
This paper presents a constructivist methodology for teacher training in robotic technology and its implementation within the framework of a teacher training course. The methodology in question is aimed at keeping in line with the proposed use of robotics as a tool of constructivist teaching and learning and is meant to train teachers in the very way in(More)
follows in the tracks of a very successful first workshop held in conjunction with UM2001. This workshop intends to explore methods and criteria that can be employed in assessing (interactive) adaptive systems. The perspective taken is that a build-up of knowledge in this direction can serve as a driving force in facilitating and fostering detailed(More)
