This study investigates metacognitive conversations in two grade 5/6 classrooms that engaged in knowledge building about the human body using Knowledge Forum. The metacognitive conversations were supported by Idea Thread Mapper (ITM), which makes collective progress in online discourse visible for collaborative reflection. The analyses elaborate the processes of the metadiscourse and the teachers’ role.
