Title: "Designing Facilitator Assistant Functions to Support Intercultural Children's Group Work"
This paper proposes a design of a facilitator assistant aimed at supporting children speaking low-resource languages (LRL) in intercultural children's group work. Our previous studies have highlighted the challenges faced by LRL children in understanding conversations and expressing their ideas in such workshop settings. In response, our ongoing research focuses on exploring effective ways to provide support for LRL children. The design of the facilitator assistant function presented in this paper aims to address these challenges and enhance the participation of LRL children. By offering necessary assistance, we seek to create an inclusive and empowering environment that enables LRL children to effectively engage and contribute during the group activities. This paper provides a summary of our previous works and proposes facilitator assistant functionalities based on the findings of those studies.
