    The process in which a child and a robot work together to solve a learning task can be characterised as a triadic interaction. Interactions between the child and robot; the child and learning materials; and the robot and learning materials will each shape the perception and appreciation the child has of himself or herself, of the robot, and of the learning task. This paper discusses several experiments aimed at uncovering some of the dependencies inherent in this model of triadic interaction, and suggests steps towards developing more accurate measurement tools.
