Educational robotics has recently appeared in classrooms as a creative process based on trial–error and as a technological process based on the interactions between science, society, and technology which are embodied in the construction, programming, and manipulation of a robotic platform. Although it does not imply a learning methodology in itself, educational robotics can play the role of being a manipulative tool in the teaching process and place the robot as a companion and co-learner of the student, and even as a tutor. Although still in the empirical phase, the already numerous developed scientific studies envision a series of positive contributions that often recur: (1) academic performance, (2) interest and motivation, (3) social skills and cooperative work, (4) creativity, and (5) problem solving skills.
Sustainability will release a Special Issue dedicated to the application of robotics in Sustainability Education which focuses on all educational levels from early childhood to Master or PhD studies. Therefore, original contributions are welcomed where the use of robotic systems, mobile robots, etc., generates positive contributions when teaching sustainability concepts.
