Since Seymour Papert (1993) [1] who was the first man to apply robots in education, using robots to support teaching and learning, from secondary school to undergraduate courses to graduate education, has become a popular research topic in recent years [2] [3] [4]. He proposed an approach to learning in the classroom that he calls "constructionism", as opposed to the traditional style of "instructionism". In this approach, students can learn from designing, and assembling their own robots. Since robots capture the imagination of many younger people, they have been validated as useful aids for the teaching of mathematics and physics [5]. Furthermore, the use of robots is not limited to traditional engineering departments but is distributed across a variety of arts and science courses. The use of robotics by nonengineering, nontechnical instructors has been termed a "robotic revolution" [6].
