Abstract

Cooperative learning allows groups of students to construct knowledge through social interactions with each other. Previous studies have discussed how computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL) tools have enhanced a group’s collaboration process. Cooperative learning allows groups of students to construct knowledge through social interactions with each other. The recent popularity of collaborative tools like wikis investigates similar research to the field of CSCL. Although CSCL environments have been researched, the use of wikis in cooperative learning groups are now being examined on how they change a group’s collaboration process. This study investigates how wikis can be used as a knowledge management system in a CSCL environment with high school students. Participants were assigned to three groups and assigned specific group roles. Quantitative and qualitative analyses indicated that some students using a wiki participated in a deeper investigation of course content.
