Social robots for education: A review

Social robots for education: A review | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Social robots can be used in education as tutors or peer learners. They have been shown to be effective at increasing cognitive and affective outcomes and have achieved outcomes similar to those of human tutoring on restricted tasks. This is largely because of their physical presence, which traditional learning technologies lack. We review the potential of social robots in education, discuss the technical challenges, and consider how the robot’s appearance and behavior affect learning outcomes.

Innovate My School - 3 edtech fields set to supercharge creativity in your school

Innovate My School - 3 edtech fields set to supercharge creativity in your school | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Technology has transformed the classroom over the past decade. Computers, smart boards and laser cutters - which were once few and far between - are now commonplace thanks to the £900m spent on education tech every year. These changes have gone a long way in creating a more engaging learning experience, but the next wave of developments will take things to the next level, by creating more sensory experiences that help educators convey concepts to students in new, hands-on ways. So what should your school be looking to invest in? Here are three top choices.
