Pedagogical agents for learning (PALS)
Using Pedagogical Agents in Your Training Materials
A scientifically proven way to make your training material more effective is to use PALs or Pedagogical Agents for Learning. PALs are simply comic or cartoon characters. You insert them into training material to:
- Highlight important facts
- Act as virtual tutors
- Provide feedback and encouragement
From the main dashboard in Pixton, you’ll see a characters tab. Create a PAL from there and when you are done, download it. You’ll get a PNG image with transparency, meaning there will be no white background behind the character. You can then insert your PAL into any document you like.
