Abstract

Recently, the intelligent service robot has become a new educational medium that can provide customized learning services by moving autonomously, controlling itself, and making cognitive judgments through its recognition of the environment. In Korea, robot-aided education has been studied. It was shown that robot-aided education was friendlier than other media-assisted education and enhanced children’s motivation. However, we need to examine stakeholders’ perceptions and needs on the educational use of intelligent robots in schools before introducing it as a new technology to support educational practices. Therefore, we surveyed the perceptions and needs of intelligent educational service robot among teachers, students and parents in Korea. In this study, we found that they have a positive perception of the use of robots in schools. However, they do not want to use the robot as a teacher. Also, we identified what functionalities are required for the educational use of the robot in schools.
