Abstract

This paper will present work done and currently being further explored in the development of computer-supported tools, pedagogical methods and instructional designs to scaffold and enable conceptual change through written argumentation. The results of the design-based research and development conducted so far will be presented, as well as future perspectives and objectives that will build and extend upon preliminary research and designs done for the development of C-SAW (Computer-Supported ArgumentativeWriter), a prototype of a computer-supported environment scaffolding self-regulation and self-evaluation during argumentative writing. In fulfilling these aims it is hoped that some gaps and remaining open questions in conceptual change theory and argumentative writing processes will be filled, so as to further develop appropriate tools and pedagogical approaches.
