Paper presented at 8th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), Rhodes, Greece, 8 - 13 June 2009
Abstract: 
This work analyzes the interactions of small groups of students doing collaborative
learning activities in the primary classroom for learning Chinese as a second language. We
take the perspective of identifying the characteristics of interactional moves as students
interact and negotiate meaning in the computer-mediated collaborative learning (CSCL)
environment called GroupScribbles (GS). Much work in group cognition and in interactional
analysis of small groups looks at problem-solving in subjects like mathematics and science. In
language learning, the task posed for collaborative activities does not focus on problemsolving,
but it may be targeted towards enriching students’ vocabulary and proficiency in
language expression, developing their thoughts and writing through cogitating with new
words, vocabulary and sentence construction. We hope the work can illuminate how students
can co-construct knowledge mediated by GS representations for Chinese language learning. In
the paper, we look at collaborative situations in which the group members are not seated
together in the classroom, and so they have to collaborate through the GS medium.
