Abstract: In peer tutoring settings, questions raised by the tutee can be important in enhancing tutor learning. This paper proposes Econie, an inquisitive virtual tutee environment from this perspective. It supports a student tutor to teach by constructing a qualitative map in the domain of economics, and to be guided into reflective tutoring interaction by virtual tutee question prompts. An evaluation that compares mid-tutoring and post-tutoring tutee question prompts is described. The preliminary results provide us some evidence that the simulated tutee questions may have positive effects on students' learning.
