THEME: Computers, robots & humans in SLaTE interaction

Speech and Language technology are becoming more and more prevalent both in classrooms and in online learning. Learners interact with peers and/or automated tutors, in more and more realistic virtual, computer-animated, settings, or in situated interaction with social robots. What new, pedagogical, phycological and technological, challenges do the new interaction settings create; and how can we address them?
