The use in the educational context of Artificial Intelligence-based technologies developed to automate the process of intepreting the human emotial state, must be the subject of reflection by the pedagogical community. In this work, the potential levels of machine understanding of human emotions are assessed, and the issues of applicability are noted in order to favour the creation of tools that are consistent with a simplex didactic action and in line with the ideas on emotive intelligence.
