Using Dialogue System Technology to Support Interactive History Learning (bibtex)
by David Traum
Abstract:
We describe the use of spoken dialogue technology to enhance informal history learning. We describe several uses for this technology, including allowing learners to engage in natural interactions at a historical site, allowing learners to talk with recreations of historical figures, and using oral history recordings of a witness to create a dialogue experience. Two projects are highlighted, one to give a guided experience of a historical location, and another, New Dimensions in Testimony, that allows an experience similar to face to face conversation with a Holocaust survivor. These techniques allow many of the bene⬚ts of an intimate connection to historical places and people, through direct interaction and user initiative, but can also be delivered to a mass audience, formerly only reachable by broadcast, non-interactive media.
