Solli, Anne; Mäkitalo, Åsa; Hillman, Thomas – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2018
Giving students opportunities to work collaboratively with complex online information is important for the development of democratic citizenship, but providing and structuring these opportunities poses pedagogical challenges. In this study, we investigate how digital mapping tools developed within Science and Technology Studies (STS) are used by…

Hammond, Michael – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2015
This paper is an exploration of the relevance of Habermas's social theory for understanding meaning making in the context of shared online interaction. It describes some of the key ideas within Habermas's work, noting the central importance it gives to the idea of communicative action - a special kind of discourse in which there is "no other…

Eryilmaz, Evren; van der Pol, Jakko; Ryan, Terry; Clark, Philip Martin; Mary, Justin – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2013
This article reports a theory-driven experimental study that evaluates the effects of an annotation functionality on online social interaction and individual learning outcomes. The central hypothesis of this study is that directly addressing a part of a text by annotating it and then connecting each annotation with its related discussion can…

Mu, Jin; Stegmann, Karsten; Mayfield, Elijah; Rose, Carolyn; Fischer, Frank – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2012
Research related to online discussions frequently faces the problem of analyzing huge corpora. Natural Language Processing (NLP) technologies may allow automating this analysis. However, the state-of-the-art in machine learning and text mining approaches yields models that do not transfer well between corpora related to different topics. Also,…

Bennerstedt, Ulrika; Ivarsson, Jonas; Linderoth, Jonas – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2012
In the discussion on what players learn from digital games, there are two major camps in clear opposition to each other. As one side picks up on negative elements found in games the other side focuses on positive aspects. While the agendas differ, the basic arguments still depart from a shared logic: that engagement in game-related activities…

Yeh, Shiou-Wen; Lo, Jia-Jiunn; Huang, Jeng-Jia – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
With the advent of computer technology, researchers and instructors are attempting to devise computer support for effective collaborative technical writing. In this study, a computer-supported environment for collaborative technical writing was developed. This system (Process-Writing Wizard) provides process-oriented scaffolds and a synchronous…

Glassman, Michael; Kang, Min Ju – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
The emergence of Web 2.0 and some of its ascendant tools such as blogs and wikis have the potential to dramatically change education, both in how we conceptualize and operationalize processes and strategies. We argue in this paper that it is a change that has been over a century in coming. The promise of the Web 2.0 is similar to ideas proposed by…

Kapur, Manu – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2011
This paper argues for a need to develop methods for examining temporal patterns in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) groups. It advances one such quantitative method--Lag-sequential Analysis (LsA)--and instantiates it in a study of problem-solving interactions of collaborative groups in an online, synchronous environment. LsA…

Bures, Eva Mary; Abrami, Philip C.; Schmid, Richard F. – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2010
This paper explores a labelling feature designed to support higher-level online dialogue. It investigates whether students use labels less often during a structured online dialogue than during an unstructured one, and looks at students' reactions to labelling and to both types of tasks. Participants are from three successive course offerings of a…

Wecker, Christof; Stegmann, Karsten; Bernstein, Florian; Huber, Michael J.; Kalus, Georg; Kollar, Ingo; Rathmayer, Sabine; Fischer, Frank – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2010
Collaboration scripts are usually implemented as parts of a particular collaborative-learning platform. Therefore, scripts of demonstrated effectiveness are hardly used with learning platforms at other sites, and replication studies are rare. The approach of a platform-independent description language for scripts that allows for easy…

Gerdes, Anne – International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning, 2010
This paper analyses preconditions for trust in virtual learning environments. The concept of trust is discussed with reference to cases reporting trust in cyberspace and through a philosophical clarification holding that trust in the form of self-surrender is a common characteristic of all human co-existence. In virtual learning environments,…

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…
