Research: Robots Give Chronically Ill Kids Valuable Social Ties with School - Dian Schaffhauser, THE Journal

A University of California Irvine research project may be the first of its kind to measure the impact and feasibility of the use of robots to bring homebound students into the classroom when they can't be there physically. The use of "virtual inclusion" through telepresence has been used for nearly two decades. More recently, the idea is that chronically ill students use some kind of robotic device on campus that can be operated from home to allow him or her to participate in class, interact with fellow students and navigate through school. https://thejournal.com/articles/2016/09/12/robots-give-chronically-ill-kids-valuable-social-ties-with-school.aspx
