This isn't exactly what you asked for but I think there's some overlap and maybe it would be useful or at least interesting to look at:


It was written by my student/TA, Ian McEwen, for a course I taught last fall.

(Voice is a load on some cognitive channel that is also used for programming and interacting with DrScheme, but we already have that in live pair programming.)
