Michaelis, J., and B. Mutlu. “Social Reading: Field Study With an In-Home Learning Companion Robot”. Science Robotics , International Society of the Learning Sciences, Inc.[ISLS]., 2018.


This study explores changes in childrens’ (N = 12) responses to interacting with a learning companion robot for reading over time. Initial comparisons of pre- and post- interviews with the children revealed that social companionship, and situational interest were maintained after two weeks of in-home interaction.
