Teaching with robots

Develop study the benefit of using robots for teaching in child and young adult education.
Description of the Project: 

The aim of this project is to develop novel teaching approaches for children and the education of younger adults on the subjects of computer sciences and robotics. This will be accomplished through a series of experiments in conjunction with locale education facilities, that will use state-of-the-art knowledge of education theory and techniques to enhance constructive alignment using teaching technology.

The experiments will explore the pedagogical benefits of robots as tools to teach and supplement human teaching staff.
Developed teaching material will be implemented on e.g. the COZMO, NAO or MARTY robot.
