Seminar on Emulated Real-world Environments for Interactive and Embodied Learning Using Robots and IoT-based Tangible Objects

Seminar on Emulated Real-world Environments for Interactive and Embodied Learning Using Robots and IoT-based Tangible Objects – 15 Apr 2021
Date 15 April 2021 (Thursday)
Time 12:30 – 1:30 pm
Format Online (Zoom)
Abstract

The main idea of creating an emulated real-world environment is to provide scenario-based learning activities based on real-life experiences. The reason why we need robot and IoT-based tangible object to build such kind of learning environment is to fully utilize the distinct features of these two equipment. The role of IoT-based tangible object is for embodied learning and the role of robot is for social interaction.

A couple of different learning applications will be demonstrated by showing YouTube recordings. Some theoretical backgrounds and the design principles/guidelines for learning activities will be elaborated following each of the demonstration. Lessons learned and future research directions will be shared before concluding my talk.
