The project “Serious Games for Education–Programming Skills” presents an innovative technology that integrates serious games techniques with remote laboratories and augmented reality. The flexible and scalable technology is designed with a three layer structure: (1) the physical layer - ROBOT (hardware and communications) remotely manipulated; (2) AR and instruction interface middleware; and (3) end-user game application including game interface. This design enables multiple pedagogical objectives and context of use. In the first prototype we have developed a serious game, the third end-user layer, to develop and assess programming skills, algorithmic thinking and debugging.
