How does QTrobot interact with children?

QTrobot can be used as a tutor to present the educational materials as well as a reinforcer or a facilitator in a training session:

- Tutor: In many educational sessions, QTrobot is used as a tutor to present the content of the session to children, provide stimulus, ask questions and prompt children to find the correct answers. 

- Reinforcer: QTrobot is a very engaging point of attention for children and can increase children's collaboration and motivation by being used as a reinforcer.

- Facilitator: QTrobot is there to facilitate a triangular interaction between the child, the educator and itself. During the interaction, it can divert the attention of the child to the educator and motivate him/her to participate in activities focused on the generalization of the skills.

QTrobot uses interactive educational methods, such as games, role-playing and social narratives to teach and practice new skills in a fun and engaging manner. 

It uses simple verbal language to communicate with children. It also combines talking with showing visual stimulus and images in a tablet, to make sure children can fully understand the content of the sessions. QTrobot can also add emotions and gestures to the sessions to teach social, communication and emotional abilities.

The complexity of the verbal and non-verbal interaction is based on the development age of children and is related to the learning objectives of each child.

The complexity of the interaction gradually increases based on the developmental and cognitive abilities of children.
