Collaborative knowledge construction

in authentic school contexts
Arvaja Maarit

Collaboration and collaborative learning have become common terms occuring frequently in discussion among teachers and researchers. in school curricula collaboration and collaborative learning are mentioned as an important means for developing learning and instruction in schools.

The publication presents a case study that explored collaboration and its prerequisites in three different school projects conducted in lower secondary education. The aim was to study how collaboration is manifested in students' shared activities and especially what features in the learning contexts were enhancing or restricting successful collaboration.

This study provides knowledge of some important factors affecting learning in social interaction, and hence offers aid and tools for planning, implementing and evaluating collaborative learning situations in different school contexts.
