Abstract

There is a constantly growing research interest for Educational Robotics and its effects to the development of student skills. Many researchers conclude and state that E.R develops and increases the collaboration skills of students, without presenting a specific strategy or a methodology that supports the whole process. In addition, the reports are not supported by measurable results or observations of elements that comprise the collaboration skills. This research focuses at the creation of the appropriate conditions, strategy and methodology in order for collaboration skills to find solid foundations for development. It is important to be stated that collaboration is not seen as the means to produce learning outcomes, but collaboration and collaboration skills are perceived to be the outcome of this approach. The aim of this article is to provide a visual depiction of our proposed approach.
