RALLe: Robot-Assisted Language Learning

Lewis Johnson

The RALLe project is investigating how to design simulation-based learning experiences for language learning that optimize learner motivation and promote conversational skills. We are doing this by developing a prototype lifelike robot that engages in conversations in foreign language, and study its use
in educational settings. In this demonstration, participants will have an opportunity to learn to speak Chinese by conversing with the RALL-E robot. RALLe is a collaboration between Alelo Inc., Robokind, Curious Lab, and the Virginia Department of Education. Evaluations as being conducted at the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, VA.
