Abstract


We present an early prototype of a virtual reality environment, intended to teach pre-teenage children how to deal with bullying situations.

We employ natural language processing to accept the participant’s verbal responses to the bully’s taunts and use these responses to drive the simulation. The participant is expected to determine on his/her own the correct approach to resolving the bullying situation.
