Lindahl, Mats Gunnar; Folkesson, Anne-Mari – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2016
The school systems of many countries have been pervaded by student-centred pedagogy making students' small group discussion a common feature of the classroom practice.However, there is a lack of studies focussing different modes of discussion for the purpose of finding out whether some modes are more beneficial than others. Hence, the aim of this…

Lindahl, Mats Gunnar; Folkesson, Anne-Mari – EURASIA Journal of Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, 2016
Students' learning is assumed to be promoted through peer-group discussion. Most studies show the presence of qualitative improvements in either oral or written reasoning as a result of such interactions. However, knowledge on the relationship between talk qualities and text qualities is scarce. We adopt an explorative design using statistical…
