»D1.2 Framework First Structure

This deliverable describes the specific objective of the framework, which is to help people create robotic activities. To achieve this, the framework introduces a macro-process that later is adapted to each one of the stakeholders' needs (i.e. teachers, organizers of educational activities, and educational researchers) identified in the D1.1. In this first version of the framework just two processes are developed (i) designing a pedagogical activity and (ii) implementing a conference.

»D2.1 Workshop Report 1st Year

The purpose of this deliverable is to inform on the process of WP2 "Educational Robotics workshops" describing the curricula created and used to deliver Educational Robotics Workshops (henceforth: ERW) and presenting the quantitative data obtained during the ERWs delivery. The report creates a baseline, which will be used for further modification and improvement of the ERW curricula throughout the ER4STEM project lifecycle. Quantitative data in this deliverable is based on the information reported in the workshop information forms, provided by each partner.

»D4.1 First Version of the Activity Plans

This deliverable addresses the first year of work in Work/package 4: "Pedaogical Design and Innovation for Educational Robotics". In accordance to the Description of Work (DoW), D4.1 reports on the first version of activity plans developed for ER4STEM and implemented in the first round of workshops. This version of activity plans has been designed with the use of an activity plan template developed by UoA- ETL aiming to provide tools to the stakeholders of educational robotics to design activity plans that integrate key learning activities.

»D5.1 Mobile Robot Controller Prototype

This document describes the prototype of Pocket Bot, a graphical programming environment for the educational robotics controller Hedgehog to be used on smartphones. In the beginning, the Hedgehog controller is introduced, which was mainly developed during the project SCORE! (funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency). Then, insights about Pocket Code are given, which acted as basis for Pocket Bot. Finally, details about Pocket Bot are reported.

»D5.2 Prototype of Slurtles for Kids

This documents presents the SLurtles prototype for kids. SLurtles, having never previously been implemented with young learners will be used for the first time using the ER4STEM framework. To realise the potential of SLurtles with young people they need to be redesigned and implemented in a secure virtual world environment. Once created, SLurtle-based learning activities which follow the ER4STEM Framework will be designed and packaged for teachers working with young learners in a variety STEM contexts. This deliverable reports on the redevelopment of SLurtles and the creation of the virtual environment in which they are used, which has resulted in a prototype ready for piloting with end users.

»D6.1 Pre-Kit for Evaluation

This document presents the development and contents of the pre-kit which acts as a prototype to pilot the evaluation tools and methods used in WP6 during year one of the project. It also provides an opportunity to collect base-line data on existing activities involving educational robotics within the consortium. The pre-kit represents the first stage in the development of an evaluation framework and tools for ER4STEM activieties (O.6.1) and was completed through Task 6.1.

»D6.2 Evaluation Tool Kit

This document presents the development and contents of the evaluation tool kit to be used in the evaluation of workshops during years 2 and 3 of the project. It is designed to be implemented by any partner in any ER4STEM context to collect data which will be analysed and form part of the yearly evaluation.

»D6.3 Year 1 Evaluation

Deliverable 6.3 presents an evaluation of the first year of the ER4STEM project. The primary aim of this deliverable is to provide baseline data for the analysis of the Framework in project years 2 and 3. The secondary aim is to inform the development of the Framework and Activity Plans. This deliverable presents data form 48 workshops implemented in four European countries by project partners. The evaluation is not intended to be exhaustive and analysis of year 1 data will continue in project year 2 in tandem with the development of the Framework. Analysis of the data occurs at four levels and from these, 11 recommendations for the Evaluation, Activity Plans, Repository and Framework are made for the start of project year 2.

»D8.1 Data Management Plan

This Data Management Plan outlines how the research data collected will be handled during and after the ER4STEM project. It describes the data set, how it will be archived and preserved as well as how it will be shared. It is a "living document" with a first version in project month six (M6), an update before the mid-term review in month 17 (M17) and a final version before the final review in month 35 (M35).
