EMOTE was featured in a school newsletter following a two month study we ran in the school. The article is in Portuguese and we have an English translation below. Thanks to the School Escola Quinta do Marquês for helping us with our study!

For two months, a robot tutor taught students topics related to sustainable development. No, this robot does not replace teachers – on the contrary, he came to help! The robot tutor was included in the School Quinta do Pombal in Oeiras. This artificial tutor was part of a normal classroom school and several students interacted with him for about two months, learning about sustainability curriculum. After the first interactions and overcoming the effect of novelty, students interacted with the robot tutor in a natural way. The results of the integration of this technology in school turn out to be positive – “I love to interact with the robot and the fact that he knows who I am, calling me by name and remember the learning that we have been doing over time is really cool. “said a student who interacted with the robot. This technology aims to bring benefits to education, such as support for specific educational topics to be included in future classrooms.
