Abstract: This paper describes the results of a study involving about a hundred adolescents from various Secondary Schools in Singapore in 2004. Subjects were tasked with two complementary tasks in the field, and they worked in pairs to navigate a given route, and also to subsequently engage in a debate about an issue pertaining to the same neighbourhood, using text - and picture-messaging technologies. The paper references an earlier pilot study carried out that same year with a separate, smaller, group of students. The results of the study are analysed with a view to informing more effective classroom practice, specifically when teaching map-reading, and, more generally, in collaborative learning environments as a whole.
