Learning to program in K12 using a remote controlled robot: RoboBlock


Programming is part of the curricula in different subjects and countries. To face this challenge, schools are using visual programming (e.g., Scratch, Blockly) and/or educational robots. Some combinations of these two tools are very popular, such as the Lego Mindstorm robots. This work presents a remote controlled robot called RoboBlock, and its main characteristic is that it can be programmed and controlled via Internet. RoboBlock is developed under the WebLab-Deusto Remote Laboratory Management System
