Research informs us of the benefit of parental involvement in learning activities in the home [2, 3]. However parental involvement may not occur due to lack of knowledge or a lack of belief in the benefit of their involvement [1]. The Parent and Child Tutor (P.A.C.T.) is one approach which may be of benefit in developing home tutoring best practice. P.A.C.T. is a novel Adaptive Education System (AES) in so far as it is a dual-user AES, which supports both the parent and child during the tutoring process. This paper describes how P.A.C.T.’s dual user architecture simultaneously supports both users, parent and child, through the provision of dual user models, dual domain models and an adaptive engine which comprises of a set of pedagogical rules. This paper describes the development and implementation of the dual user architecture.
