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.
