Abstract / Description of output

We discuss the challenges and opportunities in building empathic robotic tutors based on a preliminary Wizard-of-Oz (WoZ) pilot study. From the data collected in this study, we identify situations where empathy in a robotic tutor could have helped the conversation between the learner and the tutor. The video presented with this paper captures these situations where two children participants are interacting with a map application and a robot tutor operated by a wizard.
