Abstract

Technology integration and collaborativelearning have great impact in education according to the previous studies. This study investigates peerinteractions in terms of intervention styles and intervention strategies used by students in computer-supportedcollaborativelearning (CSCL) using dynamicmathematicssoftware. Three pairs of 16 year old students participated in the experiment. The theoretical framework of this study was based on constructivist view of learning. The Sinclair's model was adopted as analytical framework to code the transcripts of students’ interventions. The findings provide evidence for utilizing dynamicmathematicssoftware in collaborativelearning to enhance active interactions between the dyads.
