Robots for Learning - Learner-Centred Design

Abstract

The Robots for Learning workshop series aims at advancing the research topics related to the use of social robots in educational contexts. This year’s half-day workshop follows on previous events in Human-Robot Interaction conferences focusing on efforts to dis-cuss potential benchmarks in design, methodology and evaluation of new robotics systems that help learners. In this 6th edition of the workshop, we will be investigating in particular methods from technologies for education and online learning. Since the past few months, online and remote learning has been put in place in several countries to cope with the health and safety measures due to theCovid-19 pandemic. In this workshop, we aim to discuss strategies to design robotics system able to provide embodied assistance to the remote learners and to demonstrate long-term learning effects.
