Abstract

This paper presents a framework for understanding how the varying expertise, attitudes, and classroom activity structures of science teachers influence their students' use of a suite of computer-mediated communications tools in each of their classrooms. These issues are explored in the context of the Learning Through Collaborative Visualization (CoVis) Project. Findings indicate that teacher designs for classroom activity relate strongly to the frequency with which different tools are used. These results are presented in order to build a case for understanding how innovations are adopted in local contexts, as an important first step to bringing an innovation to scale.
