|Abstract:||This research aims to synthesize the extensive literature on Computer Supported \ Collaborative Learning (CSCL) in STEM education published between 2005-2014. Our \ synthesis focuses on the interactions of collaboration, technology, and pedagogies to see how \ different combinations may contribute to learning. A Latent Class Analysis was used to \ categorize existing research and points to a six-cluster solution. We have synthesized across \ and within the three largest clusters to 1) help us identify robust themes in this field and 2) \ help us better understand the positive outcomes associated with these aspects of CSCL in \ STEM education. The results suggest that different combinations of technology, pedagogy, \ and collaboration types require different strategies to scaffold students’ learning. This \ research provides a frame for synthesizing the effects of CSCL in synchronous and \ asynchronous STEM education and with various technologies and pedagogical designs.|
