Abstract

We are addressing the problem of creating empathie robot tutors to support school students studying geography topics on a multi-touch table. A multi-role serious game Enercities-2 has been developed from an earlier single-user version in which a Mayor, Economist and Environmentalist have control over differing resources. The game explores the tension between individual and collaborative success. A robot tutor, embodied as a NAO Torso robot, can play any one of these roles. This interactive demo using a large tablet and the NAO will allow attendees to play with the robot, which currently tries to maximize the collaborative score.
