About this Research Topic
This Research Topic is part of a series: Volume I.

Robots are increasingly being introduced to social environments. A key
application domain for robots is in supporting the process of learning and
training, for example, in work and education. Robots are also designed for
health contexts to involve and inform the patients in the execution of
rehabilitation or cognitive exercises and in the explanation of medical
therapy protocols.

The embodiment of a robot can lead to greater engagement and, therefore, to
greater comprehension and consolidation of concepts or procedures. The
process of learning can also be facilitated by the robot as, through social
interactions, a robot can convey educational content, adapt its behavior
according to different learning needs, and assess student learning and

This Research Topic is aimed at the investigation of new methods,
approaches, and architectures for supporting human learning and
learning-related functioning of robots in social contexts. A particular
focus of the topic will be the role of robots as an innovative educational
tool in helping students and teachers to overcome different learning-related
