The MITHOS system trains teachers’ conflict resolution skills through realistic situative learning opportunities. MITHOS supports teachers’ emotion self-awareness and perspective taking by providing a safe virtual environment to interact freely, experience emotions and natural social feedback by student-agent reactions in conflict. The presented demo is set up as a Wizard-of-Oz system. The Human-Wizard evaluates the teacher’s behavior, which is modeled semi-automatically and mapped onto a student response, based on psychodynamic models of affect. The teacher’s behavior is replayed by a virtual agent to increase self-awareness and perspective taking. The interaction is recorded to create a dataset for the fully automated multi-modal modeling.
