Abstract: Technologies can help foster diverse ideas in collaborative learning activities by taking advantage of group members’ unique ideas and perspectives. Assigning individual group members to specific tasks may promote this diversity. In this paper, we introduce a graphing challenge, in which student pairs construct graphs to represent the motion of an amusement park ride. We assigned pairs to experimental conditions with either individual design goals or shared design goals. Analysis revealed that students with individual design goals demonstrated deeper engagement with one of the design tasks (i.e., to create a “safe” ride), while this goal was relatively neglected when goals were shared. No impact of condition was found on posttest learning; however, students demonstrated overall gains.
