Laura Screpanti is an Electronic Engineer and a PostDoc at the Università Politecnica delle Marche. She took her master degree in 2014 with a thesis on the study and assessment of Pisa Syndrome from a biomechanical point of view.
She worked in the ROAD (RObotics for Assisted Diving) project to capture biometric signals from SCUBA divers during their underwater activity. During her PhD, she worked on modelling learning of students engaged in activities of Educational Robotics at school.
She has been a teacher at the “Fondazione ITS Nuove Tecnologie per il Made in Italy”. She is an expert on Educational Robotics for INDIRE and collaborated with the agency for the development of a teachers’ training repository on Coding and Robotics and to create a MOOC on the use of innovative methodologies to fight gender stereotypes.
She is also contract professor for the course "Manufacturing Models and Optimization" at the Bachelor's degree program in Management Engineering [IT09].
Her research focuses on the study and modelling of students’ learning during Educational Robotics’ activities. Thanks to the strong cooperation among the different fields and levels of stakeholders, Educational Robotics is explored focusing on research design, research tools to capture information on students’ learning, and commercial/novel toolkits that allow construction and re-construction of knowledge.
