Collaborative Writing in a Computer-integrated Classroom for Early Learning

Abstract : This paper describes a collaborative experiment with a special software application supporting the acquisition of initial reading and writing skills embedded in a computer-integrated environment for young children. The NIMIS project has set up three Computer-integrated Classrooms across Europe with appropriate "roomware" environments, i.e. furniture, hardware and software to support early learning. Here, we present a collaborative writing task facilitated by a shared workspace system, that has been evaluated with first graders using one of the software applications T3 (Today's Talking Typewriter). Mixed pairs of children used the shared workspace provided by the application to perform a typical first graders writing task collaboratively. The speciality of this experiment lies in the study of domain-specific collaboration in a rich real-world learning environment.
