Learning through Social Interaction: Shared Cognitive Experience, Negotiation Strategies, and Joint Concept Construction for Young Children.
Cannella, Gaile S.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v8 n4 p427-44 Dec 1993
Examined the nature of sociocognitive growth in 66 kindergarten and first-grade children by having pairs of children work together to solve spatial perspective-taking problems. Found that the entering performance composition of the dyads did not affect cognitive growth, whereas the construction of shared cognitive experiences in which children worked together and solved problems did result in cognitive change.
