Abstract

The purpose of this project was to study how task structure and group collaboration may influence the way children learn with Internet resources. A group of 27 elementary school children and two classes of pre-service teachers participated in this study during the summer 2000. The children were assigned to work on a WebQuest designed by the pre-service teachers either individually or in pairs. Data were collected through an observation scheme and journals. The results showed differential patterns of behaviors and emotions when children learned individually and in small groups. In addition, the differences were often related to the different characteristics of the learners and the task structure.
