Abstract

Studies reveal a number of factors which influence teachers' decisions to use educational robotics (ER)in the classroom. One of these factors is teachers' professional development training (PDF). PDF is considered to be an encouraging factor that obstructs the successful application of educational robotics (ER) among the teachers. This chapter addresses the importance of professional development training (PDT) by examining its effectiveness in integrating educational robotics (ER) in the educational practice for teaching and learning purposes in various cognitive subjects. The sample of the study consisted of 23 elementary school teachers. The data used in this research was collected via pre and post structured questionnaires and classroom observations. The findings reveal the importance of PDT and suggest that PDT for teachers in ER were valuable in contributing to improve teachers ER skills and knowledge.
