Collaborative Problem Solving in the Presence of an Expert Tutor
  Location: HC 3048
  Date: Tuesday, Aug.2
  Time: 2:45 PM -2:55 PM
  Author: Brett van de Sande, Arizona State University, CIDSE
  Co-Author(s): None
  Abstract: We know that, in the right circumstances, pairs of problem solvers can work more effectively than a student working alone. In a previous lab study, we found that pairs of students, working under the direction of an expert (computer) tutor, was a particularly effective combination. We have embarked on a project to develop technology that extends this paradigm to pairs of students working remotely from one another. We discuss the status of the project and the prospects for education experiments using this new tool.
