Mobile Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning

INTRODUCTION Computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) researchers have explored the types of interaction that are necessary in a collaborative team in order to produce positive learning outcomes. ese include such interactions as data and idea exchanges, explanations, argumentations, con ict resolution, knowledge construction, and artifact coconstruction. e researchers have also designed learning environments and scripts which sca old these interactions. Collaborative activities are now integrated into curricular activity systems, learning activity work ows, or pedagogical scenarios that include individual, small-group, and class-wide activities occurring in a variety of settings (e.g., classroom, home, workplace, eld trips, o -campus community) and modes (e.g., faceto-face or remote; synchronous or asynchronous).
