Overview

********************************

In recent years, research in Human-Robot Interaction has increasingly
attracted interest from the field of education in particular. However,
this interest is not new: the logo turtle entered schools nearly 40
years ago. Over this period, robots have changed a lot: sequentially or
eventually programmable, they also integrate a wide spectrum of sensors
and actuators. Hence, new applications in educational contexts can now
be envisioned.

The Robots for Learning (R4L) workshop is in its 4th series, and the
focus of this edition is on inclusive learning. Robots as educational
agents have been studied and deployed in various forms - as tools,
mediators, tutors, and peers. In this workshop, we aim to discuss the
approaches and challenges of developing these educational robots to be
more inclusive, helping learners of different ages, backgrounds,
genders, and learning abilities. Learners with difficulties often need
more attention or personalised training. With this workshop, we aim to
discuss recent advances in empirical and theoretical state-of-the-art
research contributions on human-robot interaction in educational
contexts on the following challenges:  How to design robots to adapt to
learners abilities? How to build long-term learning with robots? How can
robots engage learners in playful learning activities? How can robots
assist learners in multimodal learning scenarios?

We invite authors to report previous research, practice and interest in
developing application in educational robotics. Researchers from HRI,
robotics and educational backgrounds are invited to contribute. Papers
will be reviewed for appropriateness and scientific and technical
soundness. Priority will be given to papers which fit the theme of the
call, which are complementary, and which offer a range of theoretical
and cultural perspectives. The proceedings of the workshop will be made
available on our website as well as arxiv.org.
