This article presents a theoretical and empirical analysis of social interactions in computer-based learning environments. A special aim was to explore how technology can be used to support reciprocal understanding between a teacher and a student. In the belief that a computer-based learning environment creates an optimal situation for apprenticeship, we conducted studies on three different technology-based learning environments in Finland and the United States focusing on analyzing learning…
