This is a free webinar for Natspec members only. A recording of the webinar will be made available for everyone on our YouTube channel shortly after the event.

At Bridge College, a QT Humanoid Social Robot (QT Robot) supplements existing teaching methods to enhance the social interactions, communication skills, levels of engagement and mental wellbeing of learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Many learners have engaged with the robot for prolonged periods of time in comparison face-to-face interactions. Jeremy Swinn, Assistant Principal, will describe the college’s work trialling the robot software and will explain how the introduction of the QT Robot is having a positive impact. Bridge College is the winner of the Natspec 2021 Innovative Use of Technology award.
