Additional Information: Originality: This paper describes a novel system that promotes learning by getting the student to teach a pedagogical agent. Rigour: This paper describes the design, implementation and evaluation of the system. The evaluation involved both quantitative and qualitative methods. Significance: This paper showed that learning by teaching was a complex phenomenon and that the pedagogical agent needed (non-natural) particular learning capabilities to be effective. Impact: The paper has 4 Google Scholar citations, a companion conference paper has 17 citations. This approach is now gaining popularity in AIED - Leelawong and Boswas at Vanderbilt University, who are developing the same general approach, cite this work.
