  9. Reasearch issues Research questions Computer-supported collaborative writing to learn procedures Do collaborative writing activities promote the acquisition of procedures? How to design the computer-supported writing activities to improve objective and subjective learning outcomes? Type of activities : peer-assisted writing, collaborative knowledge base Design issues: Computer support features and scripting choices

  10. Reasearch issues Research plan

  11. Context • Research questions and learning issues • Studies and results • Planning and publications

  12. Studies Study 1: Investigation of the population • Objective: to know the population better • educational and personal profile • familiarity with computer technologies • working place (functioning, technologies, working journal, etc.) • Method: interview, equivalent questionnaire for all second year population • Population: 2nd year dental assistants • Results: descriptive and relational analyses

  16. Studies Teacher’s feedback Oral presentation Teacher’s feedback on the platform Co-drafting aboutprocedure and instruments Study 5 - Class activity in branch course Hypotheses: • Collaborative writing to learn activities support subject matter comprehension by the means of reflexive thinking, epistemic monitoring and planning, translation, revision. • Collaborative knowledge-building activities are associated with good perceived satisfaction and learning from the students as well as good quality productions. Design:

  18. Studies Study 6 - Home activity in branch course Hypothesis: • Peer tutoring fosters the evolution of the written productions and reflexivity on the subject topic, resulting in a greater perceived self efficacy. Design: Distance Presence Distance • critical incident procedure writing - revise • revise A read, discuss read,comment procedure writing • critical incident • revise B - revise

  20. Studies Study 7 - Home long term « journal » activity Hypothesis: • Peer tutoring fosters the evolution of the written productions, a reflexive attitude, a greater perceived self efficacy and a developed professional identity. Design: • Analyze text quality, text evolution, shared ideas, ideas that disappeared.. 4X revision of the first entry self efficacy and professional identity critical incident A self efficacy and professional identity comment B critical incident revision of the first entry 4X

  21. Studies Watch the video and write the procedure Watch the video and do the procedure Watch the procedure Study 8 - Out of school experiment Hypothesis: • Writing activities can foster procedural knowledge/skills acquisition because they support the “declarativisation” step Design: • 2 experimental groups • 1 control group

  22. Context • Research questions and learning issues • Studies and results • Planning and publications
