The present proposal shows the development of a robot in the teaching-learning process for deaf and hard-of-hearing children. This paper describes the findings of implementing an education strategy using the robot as an assistance and means for motivating the learning process. An initial literature review and state of the art analysis guided the design and aesthetics of the robot. Furthermore, it guided the educational strategy through three types of activities that increased the difficulty in terms of concept and word comprehension. Some remarks were obtained from children related to esthetics, and from teachers according to the functionality and the mode of the activities functioning. Preliminary results provide important information to improve the robot proposal, adjusting its performance in an educational context.
