Laptop computers and netbooks are now widely used by university students, and an environment where one computer is available to one person, called “1:1 (one-to-one) computing,” is being developed. In this study, we developed LiveScreenBoard, software to share the status of desktop screens, and conducted an experimental evaluation on a trial basis in order to support the emergent division of labor in collaborative learning using personal computers under face-to-face conditions such as classrooms. As a result, it was shown that reflection based on mutual comparison of their work is promoted, and advice is provided because the use of LiveScreenBoard enables mutual monitoring and thus the awareness of the problem situation and advantages of the partner for collaboration is provided, and the partner’s screen can be confirmed.
