Carvalho, Lucila; Martinez-Maldonado, Roberto; Goodyear, Peter – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2019
The theory of Instrumental Genesis (IG) accounts for the mutual evolution of artefacts and their uses, for specific purposes in specific environments. IG has been used in Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) to explain how instruments are generated through the interactions of learners, teachers and artefacts in 'downstream' classroom…

Shapiro, Ben Rydal; Hall, Rogers P.; Owens, David A. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2017
There are many approaches that support studies of learning in relation to the physical environment, people's interaction with one another, or people's movement. However, what these approaches achieve in granularity of description, they tend to lose in synthesis and integration, and to date, there are not effective methods and concepts to study…

Roberts, Jessica; Lyons, Leilah – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2017
Museum researchers have long acknowledged the importance of dialogue in informal learning, particularly for open-ended exploratory exhibits. Novel interaction techniques like full-body interaction are appealing for these exploratory exhibits, but designers have not had a metric for determining how their designs are supporting productive learning…

Polo, Claire; Lund, Kristine; Plantin, Christian; Niccolai, Gerald P. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2016
The learning sciences of today recognize the tri-dimensional nature of learning as involving cognitive, social and emotional phenomena. However, many computer-supported argumentation systems still fail in addressing the socio-emotional aspects of group reasoning, perhaps due to a lack of an integrated theoretical vision of how these three…

Cesareni, Donatella; Cacciamani, Stefano; Fujita, Nobuko – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2016
Role taking is an established approach for promoting social cognition. Playing a specific role within a group could lead students to exercise collective cognitive responsibility for collaborative knowledge building. Two studies explored the relationship of role taking to participation in a blended university course. Students participated in the…

Onrubia, Javier; Engel, Anna – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2012
Some recent proposals on CSCL scripts have suggested that one key factor for their effectiveness is the ability of the teacher to adapt the scripts to the students and to the specific teaching and learning situations. In this context, this paper presents a multiple-case study dealing with the relationship between the assistance given by the…

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…

Dillenbourg, Pierre; Evans, Michael – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
Interactive tabletops are gaining increased attention from CSCL researchers. This paper analyses the relation between this technology and teaching and learning processes. At a global level, one could argue that tabletops convey a socio-constructivist flavor: they support small teams that solve problems by exploring multiple solutions. The…

Higgins, Steven E.; Mercier, Emma; Burd, Elizabeth; Hatch, Andrew – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
This article reviews the research and evidence about multi-touch tables to provide an analysis of their key design features and capabilities and how these might relate to their use in educational settings to support collaborative learning. A typology of design features is proposed as a synthesis of the hardware and physical characteristics of the…

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…

Walker, Erin; Rummel, Nikol; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
Adaptive collaborative learning support systems analyze student collaboration as it occurs and provide targeted assistance to the collaborators. Too little is known about how to design adaptive support to have a positive effect on interaction and learning. We investigated this problem in a reciprocal peer tutoring scenario, where two students take…

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…

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…

Scheuer, Oliver; Loll, Frank; Pinkwart, Niels; McLaren, Bruce M. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2010
Argumentation is an important skill to learn. It is valuable not only in many professional contexts, such as the law, science, politics, and business, but also in everyday life. However, not many people are good arguers. In response to this, researchers and practitioners over the past 15-20 years have developed software tools both to support and…

Gressick, Julia; Derry, Sharon J. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2010
We conducted research within a program serving future mathematics and science teachers. Groups of teachers worked primarily online in an asynchronous discussion environment on a 6-week task in which they applied learning-science ideas acquired from an educational psychology course to design interdisciplinary instructional units. We employed an…
