Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL)

Computers & Education Volume 25, Number 3, ISSN 0360-1315 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


This paper reviews efforts to develop and use computer support for situated, collaborative learning. We have been investigating how to integrate two types of group collaboration tools: constructivist and ‘minimal instructionist’. Results from classroom-based experiments illustrate a number of problems arising from the use of either approach alone. Given the right amount and manner of instructionism (i.e. minimal instructionism), students seem to favor its integration into constructivist environments.
