Generating Socially Appropriate Tutorial Dialog [chapter]

W. Lewis Johnson, Paola Rizzo, Wauter Bosma, Sander Kole, Mattijs Ghijsen, Herwin van Welbergen
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper describes a dialog generator for pedagogical agents that takes motivation and face threat factors into account.  ...  This enables the agent to interact with learners in a socially appropriate fashion, and foster intrinsic motivation on the part of the learner, which in turn may lead to more positive learner affective  ...  Either way, the interactions are realized by the dialog generator, which selects appropriate dialog moves in accordance with the social distance and the intended effects on learner motivation.  ...

Scaffolding and Knowledge Appropriation in Online Collaborative Group Discussions

Hwee Ling Lim
2010 Contemporary Educational Technology  
Moreover, from participating in dialogic interaction, there is appropriation of the knowledge shared and jointly created by learners which could transform individual understandings.  ...  Survey findings on two student groups' experiences of collaborative learning during online tutorials are presented.  ...  Therefore, learning environments that facilitate social interactions are vital as they provide opportunities for dialog and appropriation that affect intellectual growth.  ...

Experimental evaluation of polite interaction tactics for pedagogical agents

Ning Wang, W. Lewis Johnson, Paola Rizzo, Erin Shaw, Richard E. Mayer
2005 Proceedings of the 10th international conference on Intelligent user interfaces - IUI '05  
The results of the experiment provide a basis for the design of a polite pedagogical agent and its tutorial intervention strategies.  ...  The combined dialog generator takes the desired utterance type, language elements, and a set of parameters governing face threat mitigation (social distance, social power, and motivational support) as  ...  This semi-automated interface enables a human tutor to select tactics and use the politeness model to generate the tutorial dialog for those tactics.  ...

learning occurs, such as one-to-one tutorials (desk crits), group tutorials and design reviews (crits or juries).  ...  As such, it aligns strongly with socio-constructivism, where learning is co-constructed and negotiated through a social process of collaborative dialogue.  ...  Thanks also to the students who gave permission for tutorials to be screenshot and provided their opinions about online learning at LJMU during the pandemic.  ...

Socially Capable Conversational Tutors Can Be Effective in Collaborative Learning Situations [chapter]

Rohit Kumar, Hua Ai, Jack L. Beuth, Carolyn P. Rosé
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Tutorial Dialog has been shown to be effective in supporting both individual as well as group learners.  ...  Further, this tutor is evaluated in comparison with a socially-neutral baseline agent and human capability "gold standard" tutors.  ...  This suggests that insufficient amount of social behavior performed by our social tutors could be a reason for their inferior perception compared to the human tutors.  ...

Dialogue and language as factors contributing to transformative learning in academic tutoring

Grzegorz Grzegorczyk
2018 Psychology of Language and Communication  
In this model communication is understood as a collaborative dialogical practice, which leads us to see learning as a result of interactivity in the learner-tutor dyad afforded by geo-spatial conditions  ...  In this paper we present learning in the dialogical tutor-tutee paradigm as a distributed, embodied, and enacted meaning-making process rather than mere 'sending' and 'receiving' of substantive information  ...  Such a structure leads to learning through appropriation.  ...
