Over the last decade, at an international level, quite a few efforts have been made to include robotics in the secondary school education, mainly in science and technology subjects. However, even though the teacher’s role in an effective and productive incorporation of that kind of technology in the educational process is of particular importance, very few teacher further education attempts have been recorded. Focused on that direction is the European project “Teacher Education on Robotics-Enhanced Constructivist Pedagogical Methods” (TERECoP), developed within the framework of the European program COMENIUS with the participation of 8 educational institutions from 6 European countries. This paper presents the project in question with special reference to the curriculum of a teacher training course, which is aimed at the use of robotics in education and which has been designed and already implemented on a trial basis within the framework of the aforementioned project, following the constructivism, constructionism and project-based learning principles.
