|Abstract:||One important way in which learners can co-construct new knowledge is by drawing collaborative inferences from distributed information. However, groups rarely use members' complementary knowledge resources to their best potential. In this experiment, student dyads were trained to apply collaborative inferencing strategies. Training improved students' knowledge co-construction during subsequent, unsupported collaboration. The best performance during transfer was achieved when a specifically designed inference tutoring tool had been employed during training.|
