Comparison of Student's Feedback Between the Application of A Robot Teacher and Human

2015 Journal of Advances in Humanities and Social Sciences  
Excited feeling experienced by the students involved in the experiments is the important point for the comparison between robot and human teacher lecture class.  ...  To make this research more applicable, some variables were decided when handling the experiment. The finding of this research is displayed in graphs for each question.  ...  While, Excited feeling is also constantly high for robot teacher session. For Question 3, there is high frequency in Hesitant and Inspired for the robot teacher session.  ...

Making Turn-Taking Decisions for an Active Listening Robot for Memory Training [chapter]

Martin Johansson, Tatsuro Hori, Gabriel Skantze, Anja Höthker, Joakim Gustafson
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper we present a dialogue system and response model that allows a robot to act as an active listener, encouraging users to tell the robot about their travel memories.  ...  The model was trained on human-robot dialogue data collected in a Wizard-of-Oz setting, and evaluated in a fully autonomous version of the same dialogue system.  ...  This research was funded by Toyota Motor Corporation, as well as the Swedish research council (VR) project Coordination of Attention and Turn-taking in Situated Interaction (2013-1403).  ...

Supporting Complex Robot Behaviors with Simple Interaction Tools [chapter]

David J., David I., Curtis W., Douglas A., William D.
2007 Human Robot Interaction  
In fact, the need for effective task allocation remains one of the most important challenges facing the field of human-robot interaction (Burke et al., 2004) .  ...  They lacked the "big picture" view of the system, and interacted with it as if it was a demonstration of one of the components (face detection, for example).  ...  For example, a significant research effort is being devoted to designing human-robot interface that makes it easier for the people to interact with robots.  ...

Conversational gaze mechanisms for humanlike robots

Bilge Mutlu, Takayuki Kanda, Jodi Forlizzi, Jessica Hodgins, Hiroshi Ishiguro
2012 ACM transactions on interactive intelligent systems (TiiS)  
The current work investigates people's use of key conversational gaze mechanisms, how they might be designed for and implemented in humanlike robots, and whether these signals effectively shape human-robot  ...  In these trials, the robot used gaze mechanisms to signal to its conversational partners their roles either of two addressees, an addressee and a bystander, or an addressee and a nonparticipant.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We would like to thank Sara Kiesler for her guidance in experimental design, Toshiyuki Shiwa for his help with data coding and the execution of the experimental evaluation, Laurel Bancroft  ...

Identifying Functions and Behaviours of Social Robots for In-Class Learning Activities: Teachers' Perspective

Jessy Ceha, Edith Law, Dana Kulić, Pierre-Yves Oudeyer, Didier Roy
2021 International Journal of Social Robotics  
Overall, the teachers responded positively to the idea of introducing a social robot as a technological tool for learning activities, envisioning differences in usage for teacher-robot and student-robot  ...  As teachers are a critical stakeholder in the use and application of educational technologies, we conducted a study to understand teachers' perspectives on how a social robot could support a variety of  ...  T4 mentioned that some questions are tough for students to answer, resulting in a low number of responses-providing a perfect opportunity for the robot to step in.  ...

Active Blended Learning Engineering Students: A Case Study

Valery Vodovozov, Zoja Raud, Eduard Petlenkov
2022 Education Sciences  
In contrast, the learning of master students looks more circumspect and selective; they devote less time to study, but spend it more wisely, being more highly responsible for the outcomes than bachelors  ...  Most of the bachelor degree learners volunteered to participate in active learning, although a significant proportion of them was unable to succeed.  ...  In mastery-based BL systems offered in [19, 20] , both online and face-to-face learning styles are available and can run in parallel.  ...
