Computer-Supported Collaborative Inquiry Learning and Classroom Scripts: Effects on Help-Seeking Processes and Learning Outcomes
Makitalo-Siegl, Kati; Kohnle, Carmen; Fischer, Frank
Learning and Instruction, v21 n2 p257-266 Apr 2011
This study examined the influence of classroom-script structure (high vs. low) during computer-supported collaborative inquiry learning on help-seeking processes and learning gains in 54 student pairs in secondary science education. Screen- and audio-capturing videos were analysed according to a model of the help-seeking process. The results showed that the structure of the classroom script substantially affects patterns of student help-seeking and learning gain in the classroom. Overall, students in the high-structured classroom-script condition sought less help but learnt more than those in the low-structured classroom-script condition. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
