van Boxtel, Carla; van der Linden, Jos; Kanselaar, Gellof
Journal of Experimental Education, v69 n1 p57-76 Fall 2000
Studied how features of student interaction and the way an individual student contributes to that interaction relates to the improvement of conceptual understanding in the domain of physics, focusing on the use of textbooks during collaborative work. Results for 56 high school students show that the use of textbooks had a negative effect on elaboration and coconstruction during student interaction. (SLD)
