Learning and Instruction, v10 n5 p431-46 Oct 2000
Studied the social interaction of 7- and 9-year-olds working in the same or mixed gender pairs on language-based computer and noncomputer tasks. At both ages, mixed gender pairs showed more assertive and less transactive (collaborative) interaction than same gender pairs on both tasks. Discusses the mediational role of the computer and the social dynamics that frame its use. (SLD)
