The Case for Social Agency in Computer-based Teaching: Do Students Learn More Deeply When They Interact with Animated Pedagogical Agents?
ARTICLE

, , ,

Cognition and Instruction Volume 19, Number 2, ISSN 0737-0008

Abstract

Five experiments explored a potentially more productive application of educational technology in which an individual learner has the opportunity to develop a social relation with a computer by interacting with an animated pedagogical agent. Results support the introduction of interactive pedagogical agents to promote meaningful learning in multimedia lessons. (Author/SD)
