Abstract: This study reports two cases of computer-supported activity drawn from intact classrooms implementing a Web-based Inquiry Science Environment (WISE) unit in the disciplinary context of global climate change. The two cases contrast balanced and uneven collaboration, and related learning activity. Interactions across scaffolded activity types are also contrasted, finding that narrative explanations provoked greater generativity as compared to other assessment formats. Analyzing the dyadic interactions from a Learning as a Member Perspective (LAMP) (Stevens, 2010), interactive visualizations emerged as much richer sources of learning opportunities, particularly when embedded in inquiry sequences. Design considerations are discussed.
