Abstract

The potential of new information technologies to support learning has been widely recognized, and educational institutions at all levels have invested heavily in realizing such potential. Despite a good deal of early interest in using computers to "individualize" learning, one of the clearest findings of recent research in computer-based learning is that learning is often positively affected by peer interaction. Learning with Computers brings together a collection of chapters from well-known researchers in this field, and is grouped into three sections: experimental studies of process and product; naturalistic studies of computer-based collaborative activities and contexts for collaboration. This book will be of interest to those working within both psychology and education.
