Even though collaboration in peer learning has been shown to have a positive impact for stu- dents, there has been little research into col- laborative peer learning dialogues. We ana- lyze such dialogues in order to derive a model of knowledge co-construction that incorpo- rates initiative and the balance of initiative. This model will be embedded in an artificial agent that will collaborate with students.
