Parent Activities: Development of Children's Cognitive Skills using Robots

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Typically developing children learn and develop their cognitive, language , social and motor skills by interacting with their environment. This includes playing with toys and physically manipulating objects. Children with physical limitations may not be able to fully explore their world in this way, so their opportunities for learning are limited. Robots can provide children with a means to play and learn, that they might otherwise be unable to do. Parent materials have been developed to show parents a number of different ways that robots can be used to help promote their child’s development through fun learning activities. A manual, play items and the robot were distributed to parents to use with their children. The parents were asked to review the manual's accessibility and ease of use. The parents' feedback was evaluated in order to examine the experience of the parents and children of using the manual at home.
