Abstract:

The following article presents a vocabulary training application that combines tangibility and attractiveness of the verbally and nonverbally expressive robot rabbit Nabaztag and an on-screen application. An adaptive feedback mechanism rounds off the learning experience. The results of the case study conducted with fifth grade students show that the junior high school students perceived the hedonic and pragmatic quality of interacting with the rabbit as high and considered both, ease of use and perceived usefulness as high. All in all, the application fulfills essential prerequisites for a successful implementation of a robot-assisted vocabulary training system that is pleasurable for children and motivates them to repeated use.
