In this paper, a pipeline is suggested for measuring child engagement in a robot tutoring task, together with a pilot experiment for verification. Smiling, gaze direction and posture are taken as indicators for engagement. A pilot experiment is proposed to test the performance of the model.
This will be a robot tutoring task based on the child game “I spy with my little eye” during which children with the age of five learn English names for animals [6]. In this pilot experiment, the children are provided breaks when they are
dis-engaged, to re-engage the children. Afterwards, the children will be asked to rate the perception of the robot, and it is expected that this rating will be higher than a robot without engagement detection.
