Robotics and the Emulation of Human Ethics in Educational Settings: A Content Analysis

Research focused on robotics and ethical emulation of human ethics in educational settings.

Abstract: 

Educators play a significant role in the formation of learner ethical perspectives and models; however, the ethical effects of the use of robots in education leave unanswered questions.  Questions arise related to how ethical standards are determined and what model is used to emulate human ethics. Therefore, the purpose of this qualitative summative content analysis was to examine how the emulation of human ethics programmed in robots used in educational settings is perceived.  A content analysis was used to explore this qualitative study.  The main research question was How do robotics program developers perceive the role of emulation of human ethics when programming robots for use in educational settings?  Educational leaders may use the findings in this study as a springboard for re-evaluating mission statements and ethical policies.  Likewise, after reviewing the findings, robotic programmers may see the need for collaboration with educational leaders to engage in on-going discussions related to ethical standards, positive outcomes, issues, and challenges.
