Abstract: The UltraLite Collaboration toolkit is a low-cost, collaborative electronic quiz book that encourages students to work together and share their reasoning when answering teacher- authored questions. Group dialog occurs in teams of three students within a school classroom. Students do not receive feedback about their individual answers, but rather about the group's level of agreement, and thus must discuss their answers. Previous work suggests significant growth in content-related dialogue using similar, but much costlier tools.
