“Teachers, what do you think about robots in schools?”


In some societies robots are already integrating schools, being part of the classroom environment. This inclusion represents a big change in education and requires teachers to adapt to this type of technology in an educational context such as a classroom.

As Emote is developing a new generation of emphatic robotic tutors for education, we meet with a group of teachers to understand what are their expectations towards such a reality. Since teachers will be the primary users of this type of robots, Portuguese teachers had group discussions about what they think, what concerns them, and what are their expectations and fears regarding this subject.

Issues such as privacy, fear of replacement, concerns regarding children’s behavior, ways to increase student’s educational levels, among others, were topics approached by teachers.
