Abstract

The Affective Meta-Tutoring system is comprised of (1) a tutor that teaches system dynamics modeling, (2) a meta-tutor that teaches good strategies for learning how to model from the tutor, and (3) an affective learning companion that encourages students to use the learning strategy that the meta-tutor teaches. The affective learning companion's messages are selected by using physiological sensors and log data to determine the student's affective state. Evaluations compared the learning gains of three conditions: the tutor alone, the tutor plus meta-tutor and the tutor, meta-tutor and affective learning companion.
