Abstract: Humanoid robots are gradually finding their way into various sectors of the society including the educational sector. Over the years various teaching methods have been introduced to the educational system to make it more effective. The use of learning objects such as humanoid robots in education is aimed at achieving this objective. For the humanoids to be successfully integrated into the educational sector, there is a need for comprehensive study of the humanoid robots and the factors that might aid or hinder their successful integration. This study will look at various gender issues such as attitude, preference, level of interaction and appearance. It will determine how these issues will affect the acceptance and integration of humanoid robots in the educational system. This will assist in the design of humanoid robots that can be more easily adopted by both students as well as teachers.
