Innovative Use of Robots and Graphical Programming in Software Education

TURNER Scott,HILL Gary (Division of Computing,University of Northampton,Northampton NN2 6JD,UK)  
Problem solving is an important skill for a computer scientist.Mindstorm based robots have been used previously,for teaching programming to computing and engineering students here we look at problem solving.These approaches focus upon the development of problem solving skills and not on learning a new programming language from the outset.Therefore,initially,any programming is kept simple with the minimum of commands,with 'objects' unknowingly used,as these are later introduced/learnt during the programming stage of the computing module.This work suggests that using LEGO robots within the teaching of problem solving and the resulting java GUI emulation has some benefits for the students when learning to program.
