Cognition and Instruction
written by Christine Howe, Andy Tolmie, Karen Greer, and Mhairi Mackenzie
Examined how task design influences the effectiveness of peer collaboration in facilitating students' conceptual change in physics. Subjects were 8- to 12-year olds studying heating and cooling. Results showed the general superiority of collaborative tasks that both facilitate critical testing and require rules; task designs deploying one feature in isolation were less helpful than designs deploying none.
