Integrating CMC and verbal discussions in students’ collaborative learning in a F2F classroom
Issue Date: 
Paper presented at 8th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), Rhodes, Greece, 8 - 13 June 2009
This paper analyses the role of different communication modes in students’
collaborative learning in a Primary Grade 5 blended learning environment in Singapore. Small
groups of students interacted face-to-face over a CMC technology called Group Scribbles
(GS) to jointly complete a learning task. We analyzed the construction and evolution of the
interactions through analyzing the artifacts that are produced by a group of students - in the
verbal talk, gestures, and sketches drawn and text inscribed in GS. F2F and GS interactions
intertwined to support collaborative learning. The findings from this study could inform the
design of integrating and reinforcing the strengths of both communication modes when
introducing CSCL in a F2F classroom.
