A robot that helps a child with autism learn different facial expressions, or a robot that discovers the power of programming with you; educational robots are being developed in many different fields. This is slowly also making its way into our classrooms. But what are the areas in which we would rather not implement robots? And where could they enrich learning?
Researchers Cristina Zaga (UT) and Matthijs Smakman (HU and VU) will explore the current field with us and share their experiences.
After an introductory presentation, we will work in groups and explore the challenges and opportunities of different (types of) robots. By engaging in this exploration together, we hope to achieve a better understanding of educational robots and their opportunities and challenges.
