APSCE Webinar #29: Emulating real-world contexts using social robots and IoT-based tangible objects
Full title: Emulating real-world contexts using social robots and IoT-based tangible objects to provide embodied and interactive learning experiences
Speaker: Prof. Nian-Shing CHEN - National Taiwan Normal University, Taiwan
Moderator: Assoc. Prof. Patcharin Panjaburee (Khon Kaen University, Thailand)
Curated by: APSCE Development of ICT in the Asia-Pacific Neighbourhood (DICTAP) SIG

Date: 9 November 2022 (Wednesday)
Time: 15:00-16:00 (GMT+8)

Abstract
The main idea of creating an emulated real-world environment is to provide scenario-based learning activities based on real-life situations and contexts. The reason why we need robot and IoT-based tangible object to build such kind of learning environment is to fully utilize the different affordances of these two modalities. The role of IoT-based tangible object is to facilitate embodied learning and the role of robot is to provide human-like social interactions.
Several learning applications will be demonstrated by showing YouTube videos. Some theoretical backgrounds and the design principles/guidelines for learning activity designs will be elaborated following each of the demonstration. Lessons learned and future research directions will be shared before concluding my talk.
