    Three premises of effective learning

  • Interactions among peers is the key aspect (Kreijns et al. 2003; Dillenbourg et al. 2009)

    Explanation, negotiation/argumentation, mutual regulation (Dillenbourg et al. 2009)

    Shared understanding Transactivity (Weinberger 2011)

    Collaborative learning: What is the essense?

  • A need for more research into the effective uses of technology in learning (Leidner & Fuller 1997)

    Not providing instruction, but promoting effective collaborative interactions (Stahl et al. 2006; Stahl 2006; Dillenbourg et al. 2009)

    Not taking for granted that interactions will occur automatically (Kreijns et al. 2003)

    Sociable environment (Kreijns et al. 2003)
