Abstract
The paper discusses the motivation for and outcome of the addition of socially oriented so called

“off-task” conversational abilities to an existing “teachable agent” (TA) in an educational

mathematics game. The purpose of the extension is to affect constructs known to promote

game. A comparison of students that played the educational game with the off-task interaction

included to those who played without it, indicate that the former had a more positive experience

of the game, and that they also learnt more in the sense of teaching their TA better. The potential
