[robotics-worldwide] [Journals] - [Robotics] - call for paper - Special Issue "Advances and Challenges in Educational Robotics"

Linda Wang
Dear colleague,

We are pleased to invite you to contribute a paper to our Special Issue
"*Advances and Challenges in Educational Robotics*" in /Robotics/(ISSN
2218-6581). Both comprehensive review and original articles are welcome.

*Guest Editors*: Prof. Dr. Igor Verner and Prof. Dr. Christian Krägeloh
Special Issue Website:
*Deadline* for manuscript submissions: *30 June 2020*

Education is currently facing challenges to adapt and keep pace with the
fast-changing technological world. The radical digital transformation
and massive introduction of robots in industry and everyday life give
grounds to speak about the beginning of a new industrial revolution.
This matter necessitates novel pedagogies that will prepare people for
the deliberate use of the new technological systems and active
participation in their development. Therefore, it is urgent to
introduce, at all levels of education, teaching robotics and teaching
with robotics in ways that align with the current demands.

This Special Issue aims to present new innovative approaches to teaching
smart robotics and using robotic environments to enhance the learning of
science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We solicit original
contributions which report on the development of robotic environments,
implementation of educational activities, and evidence-based evaluation
of their learning outcomes.

Of special interest are papers in which robotics activities combine
design and analysis and involve exploration of disruptive technologies
such as artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, virtual and
augmented realities, and 3D printing. Relevant to this Special Issue are
also contributions that explore acceptability and acceptance of
educational robots as well as other psychosocial aspects such as
opinions, perceptions, attitudes, or exploration of suitable
psychological outcome measures. The proposed approaches can target
formal or informal education in universities and schools and address
general, gifted, and special education students.

If you decide to contribute to this Special Issue, please inform us. The
Editorial Board of Robotics strives to ensure a rigorous and efficient
peer-review process for all manuscripts, in order to ensure high-quality
manuscripts are published in a timely manner (if accepted after the
peer-review process).

Robotics provides an advanced forum for studies related to all aspects
of robotics. It is covered by leading indexing services, including the
Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI—Web of Science), Scopus(citescore
1.53), nspec (IET) and DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, and other

/Robotics/ is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access
by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as
indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors
and their institutes. An Article Processing Charge (APC) of CHF 1000
currently applies to all accepted papers. You may be entitled to a
discount if you have previously received a discount code or if your
institute is participating in the MDPI Institutional Open Access Program
(IOAP), for more information see: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.mdpi.com_about_ioap&d=DwIFaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=WSrJqaxOnALnEDyBQc3yFYwqdEj-N1B-_B7hE5cBTmM&s=hcBUlZgxkluKAJdnpxgVCJwszMxYvZCZeQzgbSUge-s&e= .
