Abstract

Researchers have suggested various metaphors or roles of pedagogical agents. Agent as learning companion adopts a peer metaphor. It is recommended that the application of agent as learning companion be supported by strong educational rationale. This paper justifies the educational application of agent as learning companion in terms of well-known theories and concepts of learning and cognition in the current educational contexts, which will include distributed cognition, social interaction, and social cognitive theory. The justification is followed by the suggestions of several constituents of agent as learning companion considered critical to enhance its educational effectiveness. .
