Help! My teacher is a robot!

Leith Labs logo

Promises of ‘teacher-light’ tuition and of enhanced ‘efficiency’ via teaching automation have been with us since the early days of digital education. Does it work? Can it?

Children! Drop-in activities for younger and older children and their grown-ups will provide a fun way to look at what automation in education could mean. We'll have stories, drawing, building, quizzes, questions and debate.

Parents and teachers! Come along and meet Digital Education researchers from The University of Edinburgh who would love to talk to you about the latest thinking on the social, ethical and pedagogical questions raised by automation in education. 

This event is part of Leith Labs explores... social science.
