Alexia is a doctoral student of Learning Sciences on the Move2Learn project at the Centre for Digital Education. 

She is interested in engagement and the improvement in methods from an embodied perspective. Her doctoral research project: “What does engagement look like in early science learning?” is about developing a multimodal triangulation method that allows capturing and measuring engagement in younger children when they are at a science centre combining traditional and new tools for it.

She did her MSc in Human Cognitive Neuropsychology at the University of Edinburgh focusing on how social environments (competitive or cooperative) could influences children's executive functions.

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'
