Animated pedagogical agents and intelligent tutoring are increasingly common interface components in intelligent tutoring systems and interactive learning environments. Empirical studies which were done using “Herman the Bug” by Lester et al (1997) recommend the use of intelligent and interactive learning environments, “designers of interactive learning environments should give serious consideration to including an animated pedagogical agent in their software because of their positive effects on pupils’ motivation and learning. The ranges of the potential benefits of animated pedagogical agents were well documented in various tutoring domains” (p.12). Although animated pedagogical agents are frequently found in intelligent tutoring systems and interactive learning environments, their effect on users’ attitudes and learning requires further investigation. The purpose of this pedagogical inquiry is to assess and critically analyze the effect of intelligent tutoring on the existing educational inequities. The assessment will focus on whether the use of intelligent tutoring tools will worsen the situation of inequality or make it better.
