Robots teaching in Birmingham school

A school in Birmingham has been trialling a new way of teaching children with autism.

Topcliffe primary is using two robots on loan from a French technology company.

The robots can play interactive learning games and the children are rewarded with a dance when they get the answers right.

Children with autism respond well to the robots because they don't have the complex expressions of the human face.
