Co-Constructing Artefacts and Knowledge in Net-Based Teams: Implications for the Design of Collaborative Learning Environments
Reimann, Peter
International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, Paper presented at the Conference of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education (29th, Melbourne, Australia, Jul 10-15, 2005), v1 p53-68
Computer-based learning environments for science and mathematics education support predominantly individual learning; from first generation drill and practice programs to today's advanced, knowledge-based tutorial systems, one learner interacting with one computer has been the typical setting. Mathematics educators, however, increasingly appreciate the value of collaborative learning and include team-learning activities in their lessons. In this presentation, drawing on our research in science and design areas, an overview is provided of the approaches and lessons learned regarding computer-supported collaborative learning and a number of design guidelines for computer-supported collaborative learning environments are suggested. Since equations and graphs are so important in mathematics, particular attention is paid to the role of external representations (and their co-construction) for computer-mediated collaboration. (Contains 4 figures and 10 footnotes.) [For complete proceedings, see ED496845.]
