Symposium on Robots for Language Learning
12-13 December 2018
Koç University, Istanbul, Turkey
In recent years social robots have shown great promise as tutors and teaching aids. Education has come under pressure to deliver a more personalised, one-to-one experience., but this has been difficult given the increased classroom diversity and budgetary pressures. Robots might provide a way forward, especially for topics where one-to-one tutoring can have large returns, such as language learning and second language learning.
This symposium aims to bring together people interested in how robots can support education. We welcome views from educational and developmental psychology, pedagogy, artificial intelligence and robotics.
The symposium is also the closing event of the L2TOR project, which studies how social robots can teach young children a second language.
