Joiner, Richard; And Others
Cognition and Instruction, v13 n4 p583-84 1995
Describes a series of preliminary studies suggesting that the benefits of collaboration may be not only the result of peer interaction but also due to peer presence. Suggests peer presence must be considered in all such studies, and that better integration of social and affective approaches with cognitive approaches may be necessary to understand peer facilitation of learning.
