Abstract: In the method of preparation for future learning, learners often engage in constructive interaction with expressing, listening to and integrating their own multiple voices. In order to identify a specific discourse structure underlying successful collaboration, we used a remotely controllable robot as a member of a small discussion group of college students who solved a challenging physics problem. For the robot to act as a listener who solicits voices from students in the group, we manipulated its ways of "revoicing": it performed minimum revoicing of students' keywords without evaluative comments in one condition and guiding revoicing towards scientific models in the other condition. Comparing these two conditions in addition to a human-only condition, we found that the robot's minimum revoicing fostered students' agency and reflection on their mental models, which prepared them to learn from a lecture and solve a transfer problem. The role of listener for PFL was discussed.
