M-CARE (Mobile Training for Home and Health Caregiver For People with Disabilities and Older People) is a project partially funded by the European Commission which aims to provide the training framework and (mobile) content for low-skilled people, nurses, etc. to become personal caregivers for people with disabilities and older people. The project will generate a dedicated PCG curriculum and relevant training material for different disabilities hosted on innovative ICT-based Web 2.0 mobile/online learning platforms (PC, smartphone and tablet). Partners come from Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, and Turkey.

EDUROB (Educational Robotics for People with Learning Disabilities) is a research project aiming to demonstrate that cognitive development can be enhanced by means of mediated learning using robots. EDUROB proposes an intervention model that aims to drive students’ cognitive processes while addressing other transferable & social skills, making use of the advantages offered by robotics and its engaging and immersive nature.

The EDUROB team will work with stakeholders in the project countries (Bulgaria, Italy, Lithuania, Turkey, Poland and the UK) to develop a set of interventions utilising robots to enhance the learning of students with learning disabilities. This will involve scoping the needs of the teachers, and the students and the subjects that they are trying to teach and learn. Based on the results of this research, robotic teaching tools and scenarios will be developed and tested by way of pilot studies in each of the countries.

The results of the project will become common learning material for participating countries:

  • An educational robotics pedagogic framework
  • Learning with robotics curriculum and learning scenarios
  • Customised interfaces for robotic driven interaction
  • Learning with robotics case studies and case study analyses
