Abstract

A pilot study was conducted to investigate early adolescents' perceptions of educational robots and learning of robotics. It conducted interviews to investigate early adolescents' perceptions of educational robots and learning of robotics to assign categories to the descriptions of their perceptions. It also developed a scale to collect perceptions from more students of educational robots and learning of robotics. The interview sample included fourth, fifth and sixth grade students from northern Taiwan. These early adolescents were selected from three elementary schools in the specific region of that country. A total of 16 early adolescents were selected from each elementary school to conduct interviews regarding their perceptions of educational robots and of the learning of robotics. The research data for the survey study were collected using a questionnaire with a four-point Likert scale.
