Nowadays the debate on educational robotics is topical. But it seems that coding have often been the focus of interest without taking into account that robots do also have a “body”. We, thus, believe that today the debate launched with the seminar  “From educational robotics to Social robotics” at the last EMEM conference run in the September 8, 2016 deserves a special attention.

The focus on social robotics implies the analysis of the range of actions with which robotics is changing our lives (e.g. home automation). A robot is not only code, but has a physical structure, a body with which we interact. Let’s consider, for example, the use of robots in the field of special education.

Finally, how robots are affecting the imaginary dimension? What representations are connected with robots?

The call aims at investigating the social robotics, the imaginary dimension built around its use and, at the school level, the relationship between social robotics and educational robotics.



  • educational robotics and social robotics
