The Digital Education group have developed a simple twitterbot which has been teaching alongside us on the ‘E-learning and digital cultures’ MOOC.

Featured in the Times Higher Education today , the ‘teacherbot’ was an experiment in thinking about how code, algorithm and automation could be used in order to ask critical questions about the future of teacher automation.

There is more about the thinking behind the teacherbot in an article I wrote for the journal Teaching in Higher Education - it’s open access and can be downloaded here.
