Wong, L. H., Chen, W., Zhan, Y., & Chin, C. K. (2011, July). Analysis of small group interactions in a seamless language learning environment: An artifact-oriented approach. Paper presented at the 9th International Conference on Computer Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL), Hong Kong.
We present a study in “Move, Idioms!”, a mobile Chinese Language learning
approach that emphasizes learner created content and contextualized meaning making with
their daily encounters. Students used smart-phones on a 1:1, 24x7 basis to capture photos of
the real-life contexts pertaining to Chinese idioms or conjunctions, made sentences with
idioms/conjunctions, and posted them onto a wiki space for peer review. This paper focuses
on students’ on-campus face-to-face collaborative learning process. We derive a novel
visualization approach for descriptive analysis of the small group activities inspired by the
notions of mediation by artifacts and distributed cognition to provide a synoptic view of the
process of student artifact co-creation in such collaborative activities. The artifact-oriented
analysis and visualization approach is our preliminary attempt in making sense of how the
seamless learning process may look like in the perspective of learners’ individual and
collaborative learning experiences.
