Abstract: In this paper, we report our subjective experiences in designing and implementing the knowledge building community among primary three students in one of the future school in Singapore. The knowledge building community is reportedly one of the most researched pedagogical models that aims to foster knowledge creation among students. While its pedagogical goals are laudable, its actual implementation is very challenging especially in the Asian school context. This study draws upon the personal experiences of the authors to explicate the challenges one may face in implementing this computer supported collaborative learning models and suggests several possible solutions for the identified contextual challenges.
