    In this paper, a new vision for pedagogical agents is proposed. The pedagogical agents in the future should be able to identify the mindfulness state of the student and to remind the student to practice mindfulness for a short period before he/she continues with learning. For this purpose, this paper reviews different approaches to measuring mindfulness and identifies the weakness of the self-report measurement approach. In addition, the paper proposes to combine different physiological data types to identify the patterns of mindfulness state.
