Regulating Robot

A drama about social rules, morals and creativity

This drama gives students the opportunity to explore the necessity for social regulation, the risks and consequences of both making and breaking rules, and the relationship between rules and regulations on the one hand, and creativity and freedom on the other. It also explores how the impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on ordinary life might be managed.

This unit of work was created by Professor John O’Toole (University of Melbourne, Australia) and Professor Julie Dunn (Griffith University, Australia) especially for this resource. They have now added it as one of the twelve drama exemplars in the latest edition of their e-book Pretending to Learn: Teaching Drama in the Primary and Middle Years.
