Abstract

Know Your History is a prototype design that is a hybrid of a conversational agent, an intelligent tutoring system, and an electronic textbook. The goal of Know Your History is to effectively engage students in learning history in a way that employs a range of learning styles through active learning. Know Your History communicates through a conversational agent with speech and facial expressions that engages with students in natural face-to-face communication while providing them with information about a central historical theme. Students interact with Know Your History by speaking free form natural language queries. While additional research is needed to fully develop Know Your History, it has the potential of serving as a supplement to student learning in the classroom and/or an additional feature or add-on to electronic textbooks.
