A cognitive framework called REflective Agent Learning environment (REAL) is developed in this study. REAL is a reusable framework that allows researchers to develop a simulation-based learning environment where users can learn through passing their thoughts to some computer-based agents and observe how the agents embodying their knowledge behave as the result of their instruction. Our research benefits from the research in Intelligent Tutoring Systems, game based learning systems, and agent technologies, stressing reflection as part of the thinking processes. It focuses on the design of the framework and the testing of its usability. The external evaluation of specific implementations serves as the guidance for the future design of the REAL applications. We hope, by grounding themselves in the needs of local practice, the REAL applications can give us opportunities to understand how theoretical claims about teaching and learning can be effectively transformed into meaningful learning.
