Investigating the effect of a robotic presence compared to a virtual robot in teaching angles and turn measurements to children
In the later years robotics has seen a huge increase within domestic use, and have now become an affordable tool in the daily life of most people. The goal of this project was to investigate the differences between a physical and virtual robot in terms of increased content knowledge, learning motivation, and interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). To investigate this we conducted an experiment at Trondheimm International School (THIS), using a quasi-experimental setup with two treatment group, virtual and physical robot. The results showed that there does not exist a statistically significant difference in content knowledge gain, motivation or interest between the robotics group and the simulator group.
