Interaction tactics for socially intelligent pedagogical agents
Guidebots, or animated pedagogical agents, can enhance interactive learning environments by promoting deeper learning and improve the learner's subjective experience.

However they also raise expectations of social abilities, and failure to meet those expectations can have unintended negative effects. The Social Intelligence Project is developing improved social interaction skills for guidebots.
