Asia-Pacific Society for Computers in Education USING A CONTINGENCY GRAPH TO DISCOVER REPRESENTATIONAL PRACTICES IN AN ONLINE COLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENT

By Richard Medina and Dan Suthers

Abstract

People implicitly negotiate use of representations during learning, even in distributed online settings, but due to the temporally and spatially distributed nature of interaction, special analytic tools are required to uncover the development of representational practices in such settings. In this paper, we show how logs of online activity can be analyzed using specialized tools to recognize patterns in the participants ’ use of representations and show how negotiated representational practices affect how learners collaborate and influence each other
