Rimini, November 14th: School of Robotics' workshop on robotics for inclusion
School of Robotics Emanueel Micheli is going to give a talk at the Erickson Conference on "The Quality of School inclusion". Micheli will present some case studies where the use of robotics kit and of the humanoid robot NAO have improved the learning abilities of SEN students. School of Robotics is working, as partner of the Europole, in the EDUROB project.
Robots can provide a powerful alternative learning method for students with learning disabilities. Utilising the multiple sensor arrays available in modern robots, they can be programmed to interact with students in specific ways to encourage and engage them in learning activities. Certain students may find robots easier to engage with and less threatening than human trainers. Robots can play a key role in enhancing the informal learning most children naturally develop as they play. (See EDUROB: http://www.edurob.eu/)
