ISEL (PORTUGAL)
This research aims to discuss and evaluate the possibilities of using artificial and human interaction in the context of global citizenship education.

The paper begins with the identification of different and interdisciplinary approaches to the human-machines interaction, considering a plurality of theoretical approaches. Confronting different paradigms and approaches that range from game theory and individualistic methodology to cultural studies, complexity analysis and development education theoretical approaches, the paper tries to raise the issues that come from the use of ICT in education and the pros and cons of "the robots are coming" advertisement.

As an illustration, we'll present two case studies illustrating the possibilities of using scientific and technological education, towards inclusive education and social development:

1. First Lego League (/www.firstlegoleagueportugal.org/) pedagogical practices that aim to motivate children and young people to STEM through problem based learning activities.

2. The project "Science in your Neighborhood" within the program "Integra" promoted by Ciência Viva, that is taking place at Bairro da Bela Vista, a social neighborhood within the city of Setúbal, Portugal.

As conclusive remarks, we’ll discuss the possibilities of replicating this kind of educational projects towards socially inclusive and innovative policies in a larger scale, stressing the positive societal impacts of this kind multidisciplinary educational projects.
