This paper presents a constructivist methodology
oriented to training Robotics in its wide sense, and its
implementation in higher education. A humanoid robotics
workshop is included as a part of the curriculum of ‘Industrial
Robotics’ in the Industrial Engineering .This workshop covers
one third of the laboratory practices of this subject. A
constructivist view for learning is adopted, whereby robotic
technologies are not seen as mere tools, but rather as potential
vehicles of new ways of thinking about teaching, learning and
education at large. Students, in a constructivist learning
environment, are invited to work on experiments and authentic
problem-solving; with selective use of available resources
according to their own interests, research and learning strategies.
The authors, as trainers of this workshop, chose ROBONOVA
humanoid robots, among other devices, which attempt to partner
technology with ideas of constructivism. The materials used in
the workshop offer building parts, sensors thus connecting a
robot with the external environment and programming software
with a simple graphical interface intended for the creation of
robot behavioral movements. The idea is “learning by design”,
which is central in the constructivist pedagogy introduced firstly
by Resnick. In this workshop we corroborate this idea through
the project-based learning approach in robotics. Learning tasks
of the workshop are organized as projects (small and large) that
encourage students to develop their own designs. Projects are
either instructor led or completely arisen from students.
