Abstract

In this chapter, the author describes an effort for distance training of teachers in Greece on educational robotics' pedagogical utilization. This is done through the European eTwinning program, which aims to collaborate with schools from many countries to produce new technologies. Based on a Community of Practice of the South Aegean teachers, eTwinning organized the seminars for the utilization of ICT in the implementation of eTwinning projects and the teaching of courses with their use. From 2018 the author has included these seminars for the utilization of educational robotics in the implementation of eTwinning projects and the teaching of courses. These seminars were attended by many teachers and were very positively evaluated by them. The author believes that the Ministry of Education will soon adopt educational robotics in the teaching of courses, which is why the author plans to expand the seminars and create new ones for other robots such as Edison and BeeBot.
