Using Handhelds to Link Private Cognition and Public Interaction
Vahey, Philip; Roschelle, Jeremy; Tatar, Deborah
Educational Technology, v47 n3 p13-16 May-Jun 2007
This article discusses the importance of private interactions, in which a student works alone with learning materials, and public interactions, in which a group of students engage in discourse around learning materials. While traditional technology requires that designers choose one type of interaction over another, the authors show how handheld computers can be used to support both types of interaction, leading to increased learning.
