This study presents new ways of visualising technology-enhanced collaborative inquiry-based learning (CIBL) processes in an undergraduate physics course. The data included screen-capture videos from a technology-enhanced learning environment and audio recordings of discussions between students. We performed a thematic analysis based on the phases of inquiry-based learning (IBL). The thematic analysis was complemented by a content analysis, in which we analysed whether the utilisation of technological tools was on a deep-level, surface-level, or nonexistent basis. Student participation was measured in terms of frequency of contributions as well as in terms of impact. We visualised the sequence of the face-to-face interactions of two groups of five students by focussing on the temporal aspects of IBL, technology enhancement and collaborative learning. First, instead of the amount of time the groups spent on a specific IBL phase, the between-group differences in the most frequent transitions between the IBL phases determined their differential progress in the CIBL process. Second, we found that the transitions were triggered by the groups’ ways of utilising technological tools either at the deep level or at the surface level. Finally, we found that the level of participation inequity remained stable throughout the CIBL process. As a result, only some of the members of the groups played a role in the most frequent transitions. Furthermore, this study reveals the need for scaffolds focussing on inquiry, technological and collaborative skills at the beginning of the learning process. ...

The potential of temporal analysis : Combining log data and lag sequential analysis to investigate temporal differences between scaffolded and non-scaffolded group inquiry-based learning processes Lämsä, Joni; Hämäläinen, Raija; Koskinen, Pekka; Viiri, Jouni; Mannonen, Joonas (Elsevier, 2020)This paper contributes to the ongoing discussion about analysing the temporal aspects of learning processes in the educational technology research field. Our main aim was to advance methods for analysing temporal aspects ...
Scripting as a pedagogical method to guide collaborative writing : university students’ reflections Heinonen, Kirsi; De Grez, Nore; Hämäläinen, Raija; De Wever, Bram; van der Meijs, Sophie (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020)A collaboration script is a set of instructions used to improve collaborative learning among students in technology-enhanced environments. Previously, university students’ perspective has been under-represented in the study ...
What do we do when we analyse the temporal aspects of computer-supported collaborative learning? A systematic literature review Lämsä, Joni; Hämäläinen, Raija; Koskinen, Pekka; Viiri, Jouni; Lampi, Emilia (Elsevier BV, 2021)To better understand the premises for successful computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL), several studies over the last 10 years have analysed the temporal aspects of CSCL. We broadly define the temporal aspects ...
Deep Networks for Collaboration Analytics : Promoting Automatic Analysis of Face-to-Face Interaction in the Context of Inquiry-Based Learning Lämsä, Joni; Uribe, Pablo; Jiménez, Abelino; Caballero, Daniela; Hämäläinen, Raija; Araya, Roberto (Society for Learning Analytics Research, 2021)Scholars have applied automatic content analysis to study computer-mediated communication in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL). Since CSCL also takes place in face-to-face interactions, we studied the automatic ...
