The learning sciences of today recognize the tri-dimensional nature of learning as involving cognitive, social and emotional phenomena. However, many computer-supported argumentation systems still fail in addressing the socio-emotional aspects of group reasoning, perhaps due to a lack of an integrated theoretical vision of how these three dimensions interrelate to each other. This paper presents a multi-dimensional and multi-level model of the role of emotions in argumentation, inspired from a… 

Exploring emotional and cognitive dynamics of Knowledge Building in grades 1 and 2

High-participation students were more likely to elaborate reasons, describe relationships and mechanisms surrounding ideas they explored, and to introduce new ideas and concepts into community resources and personalized support to students with different participation levels is proposed to create a more discursively connected community.

Deliberative emotional talk

The study provides an existence proof of a kind of talk that combines compliance with argumentative-critical standards and an eagerness to express and regulate strong emotions, called deliberative emotional talk, and reflects on future research and technological developments to support its emergence.

Facilitating socio-cognitive and socio-emotional monitoring in collaborative learning with a regulation macro script – an exploratory study

It can be concluded, that the groups appropriated the script differently in different situations and with varied success, and that the macro script was used more thoroughly at the beginning of the group activities for orientation than for coordinating the progress or reflecting on the performance.

Exploring College English Language Learners’ Social Knowledge Construction and Socio-Emotional Interactions During Computer-Supported Collaborative Writing Activities

Students’ social knowledge construction and socio-emotional interactions in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) are shaped by one another and work together to affect the group’s learning

Learning to Argue Through Dialogue: a Review of Instructional Approaches

Over the past 20 years, a broad and diverse research literature has emerged to address how students learn to argue through dialogue in educational contexts. However, the variety of approaches used to

The Dangers of Assuming Before Analysis: Three Case Studies of Argumentation and Cognition

In this article, we argue that researchers in the hypothetico-deductive tradition expose themselves to dangers when they first make assumptions about theoretical constructs and second, when they

Discourse Moves and Emotion in Knowledge Building Discourse and Metadiscourse

This paper explores the possibility that knowledge building metadiscourse-discourse about knowledge building-can produce a positive feedback loop, with positive emotional state and knowledge

Computer-supported argumentation: A review of the state of the art

This paper reviews the extensive literature on argumentation systems, both individual and collaborative, and both supportive and educational, with an eye toward particular aspects of the past work, and summarizes the “lessons learned” from this large and impressive body of work.

Emotion, Argumentation and Informal Logic

Over the past 60 years there have been tremendous advances made in Argumentation Theory. One crucial advance has been the move from the investigation of static arguments to a concern with dialogic

Dialogue and the Development of Children's Thinking: A Sociocultural Approach

Even casual observations of children's everyday lives reveal that they are constantly engaged in talk and other forms of social interaction. Dialogue and the Development of Children’s Thinking

Toward a pragmatics of emotive communication

Designing a computer-supported collaborative learning situation for broadening and deepening understanding of the space of debate.

In the continuation of research on the role of socio-cognitive conflict in cooperative learning (Doise and Mugny, 1981), it has been conjectured that the cooperative resolution of such conflicts in

Socio-relational, affective and cognitive dimensions of CSCL interactions: integrating theoretical-methodological perspectives

The study and theorisation of CSCL situations involve specific transformations of the relations between these three dimensions, within an inherently open collective process of tool appropriation, is the objective of this symposium.

Scripts for Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning

The results suggest that cooperation scripts for individual knowledge acquisition should consider social components, and computer interfaces can be designed based on the instructional script-approach to facilitate productive interactions of learners and improve learning outcomes of collaborative knowledge construction in e-learning scenarios.

Self-determination theory and the facilitation of intrinsic motivation, social development, and well-being.

Research guided by self-determination theory has focused on the social-contextual conditions that facilitate versus forestall the natural processes of self-motivation and healthy psychological development, leading to the postulate of three innate psychological needs--competence, autonomy, and relatedness.
