Vox pops on robots

Children's thoughts on teaching automation

Will robots take over teaching at schools?  What aspects of teaching will they be good or bad at?  This video is based on a series of vox pops that invited children to tell us about their thoughts on robots in general, what it would be like to have a robot teacher, and what might a robot be like in twenty years from now.

'I think they're quite intelligent' 

'Weird'

'Might be a bit better at teaching becuase they know more answers to things'

Researchers from the Centre for Research in Digital Education at Moray House School of Education participated in the 2017 ESRC Festival of Social Science on 11th November 2017 to explore answers to these questions through a series of fun activities for children aged 5 to 12.
