The author considers whether current definitions of interactivity in educational software are optimal. While many definitions of interactivity in educational software are based upon how well the software imitates communication with the learner, or social interactions within a classroom, the author calls for a new model of interaction based upon how learners interact mentally with new schema. Drawing upon studies of interactive learning and educational psychology, a model for such interaction is outlined. Examples of media that could be used to create such interactions are given. Considerations on the employment of the model are offered.
