Názov: What is so special about pedagogical interactions?
Termín: 15.10.2019, 16:30 hod., I/23
The focus of the talk will be the theory of natural pedagogy, which provides a framework for the understanding of cognitive mechanisms that enable the process of cumulative culture. Proponents of this theory argue that a specific human adaptation supports efficient social learning and transmission of cultural knowledge. The presentation will attempt to outline the character of cognitive mechanisms and representations that are involved in pedagogical interactions and it will try to link the ability to understand pedagogical intentions to some other domains of social cognition. On the basis of experimental evidence, we will evaluate arguments for this theory but also the main objections that have been raised by its critics. Finally, we will discuss the relevance of this research not just for the understanding of cultural transmission, but also in relation to a design of human-robot interactions that involve teaching and learning as well as in relation to some therapeutic strategies.
