Abstract

This study presents socio-cognitive dynamics of knowledge building in synchronous online debate. Based on the twelve socio-cognitive determinants of knowledge building (Scardamalila, 2004), results present the evidence of seven knowledge building factors in synchronous online debate: idea diversity; improvable ideas; epistemic agency; symmetric knowledge advancement; rise above; real ideas, authentic problems; and constructive uses of authoritative sources. Using a coherence graph (Schallert et al., 1996), results also indicate the dynamics of knowledge building process developed in synchronous online discussion.
