  3. 3. Collaborative Learning - Students <ul><li>Students are involved in activities designed to explore course material instead of by being presented to them by the teacher.  </li></ul>
  4. 4. Collaborative Learning - Steps <ul><li>1) to set up initial conditions (for instance, how many students will there be in each group, who will chose group members, the teacher or the students themselves; should the members of the group share the same point of view or not);  2) to over-specify the ‘collaboration’ contract with a scenario based on roles (e.g., asking students to play different roles or giving members access to different data); 3) to scaffold productive interactions by encompassing interaction rules in the medium (such as asking all members of the group to express their opinion at each stage); and 4) to monitor and regulate the interactions (by the teacher assuming the role of a ‘facilitator’ instead of a ‘tutor’.  </li></ul><ul><li>Dillenbourg (1999) </li></ul>
