This two-day workshop explored the collaboration between the CREATE center and the research unit on Theory of Mind on the following questions:
The workshop participants agreed to collaborate on develop task designs to uncover children’s ‘Theory of Mind’ with regard to robots, and to examine different forms of child-child mediation carried out by a social robot; the aim of the mediation is to promote equity and fairness in children at early stages of schooling.
Further discussions focused on developing study designs that merge qualitative-ethnographic approach with the Milan group’s experimental approach and use of well-developed study tasks (e.g. the Ultimatum Game). Funding sources which fund joint research projects between the US and other countries will be identified
