This project investigates the technical and economic feasibility to develop a virtual agent; an online playmate in educational games guiding children throughout the learning journey.
Based on the learning objectives and achievements, the virtual agent reflects on the learning progress and boosts motivation. Initially, we focus on the evidence-based games of Can't Wait to Learn on mathematics and reading, already used by 20.000 children in Lebanon. This virtual agent facilitates off-school learning for primary school children and ambition is to create employment and income for a local company. This study will be carried out by War Child, TNO and &ranj.
