Encourage and Praise (NAO)

Encourage and Praise – Randomised Feedback (NAO)

Choregraphe 2.1.4 for NAOqi version 2.1.4

The NAO can respond in a praising or encouraging way. The reactions are randomised from a set of interactions (10 for praise and 7 for try again). This enables the feedback given by the robot to be varied, but to only require 2 interface buttons. Two additional interactions (I don’t know, and Keep Going) have also been included and may be useful in some scenarios.

This interaction can be used with many of the other Example Learning Scenarios. The keys to call from the app are as follows:

  • Key: “CorrectAnswer” – Robot does one of a set of 10 praise interactions involving applause, cheering, speech and motions.
  • Key: “TryAgain” – Robot does one of a set of 6 encouragement interactions, asking the student to try again.
  • Key: “KeepGoing” – Robot asks the student to keep going.
  • Key: “DontKnow” – Robot opens his arms and says, “I don’t know”
