Abstract: 
This paper suggests that online collaborative environments like Knowledge Forum
provide an important arena for students to exercise their ability to formulate reflective ideas. A
discourse analysis of three primary 4 classes’ verbal and written activities during a two-week
science unit showed that, during online activities there was a significant increase in the
number of words students used to answer questions and a higher diversity in the types of
questions and answers online as compared to those in the classroom discourse.
