Daniella DiPaola will lead two live Demo Q&A sessions on Skills from Students – Artifacts from a Robot Interaction Design Curriculum for Fifth Grade Students at #werobot. The first session will be held at 3:15pm on Friday, September 24th; the second session will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, September 25th. We suggest viewing the recorded demo in advance of the Q&A.
Many applications of social robots have been created with children in mind. For example, we have used social robots to teach children new languages, help them be more creative, and develop a growth mindset. However, these applications are typically developed by professional designers and developers of robotic systems. In this demonstration, Daniella will share conversational skills that students in grades 4 and 5 created for the Jibo robotic platform. The students developed these skills while living with Jibo in their homes for two months during the Spring of 2021. Skills will consist of multi-turn dialogue and robot animations. The demonstration will center the ideas and thoughts of these students and provide insight into how children believe robot skills should be developed.
