International Journal of Educational Research Vol. 11, No. 6 (1987) pp. 665–85
The ecological knowledge of university students was analyzed under psychological and educational aspects via a computer simulation, an environmental game consisting of a variant of the Commons Dilemma, and a computerized text base on an actual...
Learning to Collaborate: An Instructional Approach to Promoting Collaborative Problem Solving in Computer-Mediated Settings
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 14, No. 2 (2005) pp. 201–241
Effective collaboration in computer-mediated settings among spatially distributed people is a precondition for success in many new learning and working contexts but it is hard to achieve. We have developed two instructional approaches to improve...
Developing Adaptive Collaboration Support: The Example of an Effective Training for Collaborative Inferences
Educational Psychology Review Vol. 22, No. 1 (March 2010) pp. 103–113
Adaptive support for computer-mediated collaboration aims at supporting learners' collaboration in a way that is tailored to their actual needs and by fostering their self-regulation, leading to the acquisition of new collaboration skills. This...
Learning and Instruction Vol. 21, No. 3 (June 2011) pp. 441–451
Groups typically have difficulties drawing inferences that integrate individuals’ unique information (collaborative inferences) and thus yield a true assembly bonus. An experiment with 36 dyads of university-level students in four training...
Are Two Heads Always Better than One? Differential Effects of Collaboration on Students' Computer-Supported Learning in Mathematics
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 6, No. 3 (September 2011) pp. 421–443
While some studies found positive effects of collaboration on student learning in mathematics, others found none or even negative effects. This study evaluates whether the varying impact of collaboration can be explained by differences in the type...
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 2, No. 1 (March 2007) pp. 63–86
The analysis of the process of collaboration is a central topic in current CSCL research. However, defining process characteristics relevant for collaboration quality and developing instruments capable of assessing these characteristics are no...
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 7, No. 2 (June 2012) pp. 307–339
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...
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 4, No. 1 (March 2009) pp. 69–92
In an earlier study, we had tested if observing a collaboration model, or alternatively, following a collaboration script could improve students' subsequent collaboration in a computer-mediated setting and promote their knowledge of good...
Learning to Relate Qualitative and Quantitative Problem Representations in a Model-Based Setting for Collaborative Problem Solving
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 8, No. 2 (1999) pp. 177–214
Investigates how 10th-grade students acquire, extend, and successively relate knowledge about qualitative and quantitative aspects of classical mechanics. Analysis of the multicomponent tests revealed that qualitative, as well as quantitative,...
Learning and Instruction Vol. 14, No. 3 (June 2004) pp. 325–341
Computer-based learning environments commonly comprise symbolic as well as static and dynamic pictorial representations, frequently combined with the possibility of modifying them interactively. While multiple, dynamic and interactive external...
Identifying Areas of Tension in the field of technology-enhanced learning: Results of an international Delphi study
Computers & Education Vol. 65, No. 1 (July 2013) pp. 92–105
Despite steady progress in research in technology-enhanced learning (TEL), the translation of research findings and technology into educational practices falls short of expectations. We present five Areas of Tension which were identified and...
Italian Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 20, No. 3 (Dec 31, 2012) pp. 144–154
Questo articolo descrive uno studio, realizzato con la metodologia Delphi, sulle tendenze nel settore di ricerca del Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). Lo studio stato condotto nell\u2019ambito delle attivit della Rete di Eccellenza Europea STELLAR ...
