Abstract

In a world in which one of the most used sentences is: "I have no time to do ..." Information Technologies play an important role in supporting our daily work including everyday educational settings. These technologies are responsible for making a complete educational system to function successfully. For this to prove, we present the “Coaching for Teacher” system. This system aims to provide solutions for difficulties that teachers face during the teaching/learning process via a personal technological conversational coach. The teacher can appeal and seek advice quickly using our tool, in real time, by comfortably taking to an agent. In this paper, we present the steps we followed to design and develop this agent-based application, and a case study conducted in an educational centre for proof of concept in a real and authentic educational environment.
