Abstract

Mapping the development of collaborative practices in groups who work together repeatedly is important to understand how best to support collaborative learning activities in classrooms, where repeated interactions are common. Drawing on data from 19 groups who worked together on engineering tasks over a four-week period, we examine the emergence of stable practices, the types of interactions, and the use of technology to support the creation of shared representations.
