Abstract: 
This paper proposes and examines a design of technological scaffolding for
cooperative learning. An application for learning fractions with handheld devices was
designed and tested in a primary three classroom. The outcomes were interpreted according
to a two-dimensional framework consisting of the cooperative learning principles
(maximum peer interaction, equal opportunity to participate, individual accountability and
positive interdependence) and the observed interplay of social, technological and teacher
scaffolding which emerged throughout the activity. The focus of our analysis is the
technological scaffolding and the support it can give to cooperative learning activities based
on the feedback received from two sources: primary school children using the software and
a group of teachers trying out and reflecting on our design.
