Abstract

Drawing on a multi-year study of using multi-touch tables in a classroom setting, this paper lays out a framework to use when designing and studying collaborative classrooms. The framework identified the overlapping aspects of teachers, tasks, technology and teams, as being essential features of the use of computer-supported collaborative learning in classrooms. We argue that the design of collaborative classrooms should take this model into account during design and evaluation phases. This paper contributes to the Methods and Techniques strand of the Orchestrated Collaborative Classrooms Workshop.
