This symposium brings together a panel of researchers using contrasting case methodology to analyze computer-supported collaborative learning in a wide range of learning environments. Such analyses can help researchers better understand the differences in the collaborative processes by sharpening researchers' perception and facilitating the discovery of(More)
While research has generally shown that collaboration may facilitate student learning in mathematics, such positive effects are not always found. We argue that the effectiveness of collaboration may depend on the type of knowledge the instruction targets: The interaction with a partner can slow down students and may thus decrease the amount of practice(More)
CSCL includes a wide range of scenarios that integrate individual and collaborative learning. Scripts have repeatedly proven useful for guiding learners to engage in specific roles and activities in CSCL environments. The effective mechanisms of scripts in stimulating cognitive and collaborative processes, however, are not yet well understood. Moreover,(More)
