interaction is being vastly applied to assist humans in their everyday
lives. Pertaining to this context is the application of robots for
educational purposes, which has been emerging these past few years. Some
robotic platforms have been developed for educational purposes (i.e.
Thymio, Lego Mindstorm). These platforms are mainly used in STEM.
Several research projects have aimed to apply social HRI to education
and learning in order to influence other disciplines such as languages
or handwriting. Robots have started to show a real potential as learning
or teaching assistants for children, the elderly or people with
deficiencies. They even show potential for individual adaptation for
learning. Robots also have the potential to enhance learning via
kinaesthetic interaction. Social robots have shown that they can enable
users to improve their self-esteem and to provide adaptive empathic
feedback. Robots have even been shown to engage learners; to motivate
them in the learning task or to enhance collaboration in a group.
However, designing autonomous robotics agents able to adapt to learners
and to teachers is a challenging research topic. The integration of
robots in curricula for teaching other topics than STEM is in its
infancy. To address these challenges, researchers often need to take a
multidisciplinary approach including contributions from educational
sciences & didactic, pedagogy, developmental psychology, artificial
intelligence and HRI, among others. With this special issue we aim at
collecting an overview on empirical as well as theoretical
state-of-the-art research contributions on social human-robot
interaction in educational contexts. Therefore, the International
Journal of Social Robotics (SORO) invites researchers from a wide range
of disciplines, such as educational sciences and robotics, cognitive
sciences and psychology, sociology, and philosophy etc. to submit to the
Special Issue. *Topics include (but are not limited to) the following*:
******************************** * Adaptive mechanisms for robot tutors,
personalization and adaptation algorithms for tutoring interactions *
Theories and methods for tutoring (pedagogical and language acquisition)
* Engagement in educational human-robot interaction * Gain in learning
vs fun in learning with a robot * Kinaesthetic and non-verbal
communication in human-robot interaction * Attachment and learning with
a social robot (social and cognitive development) * Impact of embodiment
on learning * Shared knowledge and knowledge modelling in HRI *
Technical innovation in learning or teaching robots * Long term learning
interactions, design and methodologies for repeated human-robot
encounters * Human-robot collaborative learning * Human-robot creativity
* Design of autonomous systems for tutoring interactions * Privacy and
ethical issues in robot tutoring applications For more information and
