Fu, Ella L. F.; van Aalst, Jan; Chan, Carol K. K. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2016
The goal of this study was to develop a classification for a range of discourse patterns that occur in text-based asynchronous discussion forums, and that can aid in the distinction of three modes of discourse: knowledge sharing, knowledge construction, and knowledge building. The dataset was taken from Knowledge Forum┬« databases in the Knowledge…

Zemel, Alan; Koschmann, Timothy – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2013
In this paper we examine how two groups of middle school students arrive at shared understandings of and solutions to mathematical problems. Our data consists of logs of student participation in the Virtual Math Teams (VMT) system as they work on math problems. The project supports interaction both through chat and through a virtual whiteboard. We…

Zahn, Carmen; Krauskopf, Karsten; Hesse, Friedrich W.; Pea, Roy – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2012
Digital video technologies offer a variety of functions for supporting collaborative learning in classrooms. Yet, for novice learners, such as school students, positive learning outcomes also depend centrally on effective social interactions. We present empirical evidence for the positive effects of instructive guidance on performance and on…

Rummel, Nikol; Mullins, Dejana; Spada, Hans – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2012
With the aim to promote students' mathematics learning, we extended the Cognitive Tutor Algebra (CTA), a computer-based tutoring system for high school mathematics, to a collaborative setting. Furthermore we developed a collaboration script to support students' interactions. In an experimental classroom study, we compared three conditions:…

Yoon, Susan A.; Elinich, Karen; Wang, Joyce; Steinmeier, Christopher; Tucker, Sean – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2012
Although learning science in informal non-school environments has shown great promise in terms of increasing interest and engagement, few studies have systematically investigated and produced evidence of improved conceptual knowledge and cognitive skills. Furthermore, little is known about how digital technologies that are increasingly being used…

Silseth, Kenneth – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2012
The purpose of this article is to gain knowledge about how interactions in a gaming context become constituted as effective resources for a student's learning trajectory. In addition, this detailed study of a learning trajectory documents how a computer game becomes a learning resource for working on a specific topic in school. The article reports…

Falcao, Taciana Pontual; Price, Sara – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
Tangible technologies and shared interfaces create new paradigms for mediating collaboration through dynamic, synchronous environments, where action is as important as speech for participating and contributing to the activity. However, interaction with shared interfaces has been shown to be inherently susceptible to peer interference, potentially…

Pifarre, Manoli; Kleine Staarman, Judith – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
This paper explores how wikis may be used to support primary education students' collaborative interaction and how such an interaction process can be characterised. The overall aim of this study is to analyse the collaborative processes of students working together in a wiki environment, in order to see how primary students can actively create a…

Evans, Michael A.; Feenstra, Eliot; Ryon, Emily; McNeill, David – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
Our research aims to identify children's communicative strategies when faced with the task of solving a geometric puzzle in CSCL contexts. We investigated how to identify and trace "distributed cognition" in problem-solving interactions based on discursive cohesion to objects, participants, and prior discursive content, and geometric and…

Schwarz, Baruch B.; Schur, Yaron; Pensso, Haim; Tayer, Naama – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
Changing practices in schools is a very complex endeavor. This paper is about new practices we prompted to foster collaboration and critical reasoning in science classrooms: the presentation of pictures representing different perspectives, small group synchronous argumentation, and moderation of synchronous argumentation. A CSCL tool helped in…

Chan, Carol K. K. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
Despite major theoretical progress in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL), relatively less attention has been paid to the problem of how research advances may impact schools and classrooms. Given the global changes and educational policies for twenty-first century education, issues of how research in CSCL can be integrated with…

Cesareni, Donatella; Martini, Francesca; Mancini, Ilaria – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
In this paper we present a case study about a community of practice's foundation and development among Italian teachers, researchers and university students who participated in a European project aimed at developing and testing innovative pedagogical models and technologies for collaborative knowledge building. Forty-five people (34 teachers, five…

Looi, Chee-Kit; So, Hyo-Jeong; Toh, Yancy; Chen, Wenli – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
In recent years there has been a proliferation of research findings on CSCL at the micro and macro levels, but few compelling examples of how CSCL research has impacted actual classroom practices at the meso-level have emerged. This paper critically examines the impact of adopting a systemic approach to innovative education reforms at the macro,…

Siyahhan, Sinem; Barab, Sasha A.; Downton, Michael P. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2010
We implemented a five-week family program called "Family Quest" where parents and children ages 9 to 13 played Quest Atlantis, a multiuser 3D educational computer game, at a local after-school club for 90-minute sessions. We used activity theory as a conceptual and an analytical framework to study the nature of intergenerational play, the…

Ligorio, Maria Beatrice; Ritella, Giuseppe – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2010
In this paper, we use the concept of chronotope to analyse the co-construction of spatial and temporal frameworks during collaborative interaction. A chronotope is a genre of movement or pacing in the space that participants adopt over the temporal duration of an activity. We look in particular at the conjunction point of time and space as…
