Abstract / Summary
Robotics is becoming a mainstream phenomenon, entering all domains of our lives. Besides the cutting-edge research and development, the classroom and home education of robotics are equally becoming important. Numerous educational kits have appeared on the market recently, ranging from simple toolboxes and toys to complex, configurable R&D sets. Their value in formal teaching lies in modularity, and the applicability of the adjoin curriculum. This article compares educational robot designed to act as an interdisciplinary teaching tool integrated into the curriculum of STEM areas (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). We focused on comparing modularity, usability and its heuristic evaluation by three experts, with the objective of appraising both usability and potential design problems.
