Refutes Seymour Papert's premises because they: (1) maintain that computer criticism goes through developmental stages; (2) overlook the fact that the computer's newness in education affects the way people speak of computers; and (3) deny the...
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 8, No. 4 (December 2013) pp. 375–397
In this paper we present the results of an eye-tracking study on collaborative problem-solving dyads. Dyads remotely collaborated to learn from contrasting cases involving basic concepts about how the human brain processes visual information. In one ...
International Journal of Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning Vol. 9, No. 4 (December 2014) pp. 371–395
We describe preliminary applications of network analysis techniques to eye-tracking data collected during a collaborative learning activity. This paper makes three contributions: first, we visualize collaborative eye-tracking data as networks, where ...
Journal of Educational Computing Research Vol. 2, No. 1 (1986) pp. 25–36
Three classes of conceptual bugs presenting obstacles to all novice programmers and not related to any specific program--parallelism, intentionality, and egocentrism--are identified and exemplified through student errors. It is suggested these bugs...
Distributed by Design: On the Promises and Pitfalls of Collaborative Learning with Multiple Representations
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 20, No. 3 (2011) pp. 489–547
This article presents a designed learning environment intended to engage students in learning about the relationships among multiple representations as they work together on a shared task. Over the course of several extended problem-solving sessions,...
