Education is a fundamental axis in society, for this reason, the research aim in the field of education is to improve the learning environments in order to change the traditional model based on the unidirectional transmission and reception of knowledge. The contribution of ICTs and the spread of the Internet have allowed the development of innovative learning environments that support the teaching - learning process, such as remote laboratories. Remote laboratories are currently of great importance in the educational field, especially in sectors that do not have traditional laboratories, because they lack resources in infrastructure and equipment due to budgetary problems, especially in rural areas. Remote labs are based on real laboratory instrumentation, allowing the student to carry out practical activities similar to the use of traditional laboratories either locally or remotely, empowering in this way their theoretical knowledge. This work focuses on the use of Remote Laboratories as a teaching tool for educational Robotics, converting this multidisciplinary learning system into an innovative, dynamic learning constructionist tool that allows students to strengthen their skills and develop creativity. The inclusion of educational robotics through remote laboratories in the educational system will promote constructivism and meaningful learning, due to the active participation of students in the process of programming and robotizing of objects, which is summarized in programming to learn. The remote laboratory of educational robotics was designed for the primary education levels (students from 7 to 12 years old). The laboratory allows using and programming a device using a computer with Internet access. The remote laboratory used in this work, uses the Arduino Uno microcontroller development board presented on a previous work. The proposed activities focus on potentiating skills through rogramming, teaching in a general way the theory, components and terminology; carry out a series of programming exercises, and finally, applying the knowledge acquired to solve a problem related to their environment, allowing students to develop their creativity, imagination, increase their interest in research and to be more competitive by improving their cognitive aspects.
