Robot teaching assistants soon in Dubai schools

The tech firm ATLAB is planning to roll out a new system later this year with robots serving as teaching assistants across several schools in the UAE. The technology-based learning solutions company has announced that it will be introducing the ATLAB TeachAssist in schools across Dubai and the UAE and the rest of the GCC by the end of 2017.

The robot can act as a librarian, assisting students to locate books and even manage lending, and also take attendance of students and guide visitors, the company said in a statement. He said students will be able to ask for assistance with any course-related query and the robot will immediately fetch relevant answers. It will also be able to track the progress of individual students and customise the answers to guide them accordingly. The company said it has already received several requests from schools in Dubai and has started creating interactive content.
