Simulating Interactive Learning Scenarios with Intelligent Pedagogical Agents in a Virtual World through BDI-Based Agents

Mohamed Soliman, Christian Guetl
2013 International Journal of Engineering Pedagogy (iJEP)  
Pedagogical agents can be thought of as a central point of interaction between the learner and the learning environment.  ...  Intelligent Pedagogical Agents (IPAs) are designed for pedagogical purposes to support learning in 3D virtual learning environments.  ...  In lack of a pedagogical agent, the learner has to interact with the learning object with no guidance or pedagogical support.  ...

A Social-Cognitive Framework for Pedagogical Agents as Learning Companions

Yanghee Kim, Amy L. Baylor
2006 Educational technology research and development  
Though no claim of peer equivalence is made, pedagogical agents as learning companions (PALs)-animated digital characters functioning to simulate human-peer-like interaction-might provide an opportunity  ...  Next, based on the theoretical perspectives, we suggest seven key constituents for designing PALs that in human-peer interactions have proven significant: (a) PAL competency, (b) interaction type, (c)  ...  In pedagogical-agent-based environments, a learner grasps instructional content while interacting with one or more pedagogical agents programmed to provide information and/or encouragement, to share menial  ...
