In this video submission, we describe a scenario developed in the EMOTE project. The overall goal of the EMOTE project is to develop an empathic robot tutor for 11-13 year old school students in an educational setting. The pedagogical domain here is to assist students in learning and testing their map-reading skills typically learned as part of the geography curriculum in schools. We show this scenario with a NAO robot interacting with the students whilst performing map-reading tasks on a touch-screen device in this video.
