This study reviews the educational theories and existing literature for the integration of robots to support teaching in classrooms by assessing integration methods and the effectiveness of educational robotics on student learning. Most of the research on this subject are only focused on children from kindergarten to middle schools and analyzed the end results from questionnaires and grades. Without analysis on the human-robot interaction itself, the effectiveness of robots in classrooms is questionable especially in the higher education context. Future research should leverage more refined data analysis techniques such as learning analytics to directly focus on interaction and conversation dynamics.
