Building on existing work on artificial tutors with human-like capabilities, we describe the EMOTE project approach to harnessing benefits of an artificial embodied tutor in a shared physical space. Embodied in robotic platforms or through virtual agents, EMOTE aims to capture some of the empathic and human elements characterising a traditional teacher. As such, empathy and engagement, abilities key to influencing student learning, are at the core of the EMOTE approach. We present non-verbal… CONTINUE READING
