Synchronous computer mediated collaborative activities among collocated students: Conditions that make them valuable in every day educational practice

Abstract : Synchronous collaborative activities are usually studied in conditions where teachers and students are physically separated. Is there any possibility to apply these activities when all participants are collocated? Does this collocated collaboration setting seems meaningful and for what reasons? Is the quality of learning and teaching process satisfactory high? Under what conditions? The present research explores the previous questions. More specifically, it explores synchronous computer mediated collaborative activities with collocated students in realistic secondary school context. The proposed approach determines some significant application conditions: (a) The selection of critical instances of this setting application related to every day courses (e.g. conceptual understanding, strategies for inquiry or modelling), (b) The application of appropriate structured script that involves: individual work, synchronous computer mediated activity, face to face activity, and social activity with the whole class, (c)The existence of appropriate interactions' analysis tools, that support students in a metacognitive level, (d) The existence of interactions' analysis tools appropriate to support teachers in a diagnosis level as well as in a teaching strategies self-regulation level. Research results are based on analysis of students' actions & computer mediated dialogues, as well as on students' and teachers' points of view, in order to justify the meaningfulness of the activity. The quality of learning process and collaboration are analyzed mainly via a mixed analysis approach of students'computer-mediated dialogues.
