Abstract

There is a wide range of ongoing research focusing on educational robotics and its effects on the development of student skills. Most of the literature review pinpoints the fact that the involvement of students with educational robotics increases or develops teamwork or collaboration skills. In most cases, this is argued without presenting significant or specific measures or even significant observations in students' behavior. This first research attempt aims to deliver a framework in which students can develop collaboration skills through the use of educational robotics. In order to produce this framework, collaboration principles were molded within the proposed strategy. In addition, the implemented strategy was observed through the spectrum of developing the collaboration skills that Hesse and his colleagues proposed. At this point, there is a need to understand that collaboration is not viewed as the means to achieve the learning effects in this work, but collaboration has to be viewed as the final outcome of the educational robotics students' involvement.
