Abstract

Advancement in robotic research enables robot can assist human in many way. However, few researches have been done on applying on education. This paper reports field trials of using robot in an English learning classroom. In our experiment, the robot plays as a partner of a teacher. Five models of collaboration between teachers and robot are proposed. Teachers design the course flow in advance based on the learning content and these five models. Formative evaluations of the experiments are presented to show the impact of adopting robot in the classroom.
