Abstract: We describe the first iteration of design experiments that aim to assess an instructional framework we call Preparation for Future Collaboration, which consists of three main phases of learning activity: 1) individual cognitive preparation in the content to-be-learned, 2) discussion/collaboration of ideas generated during preparation, and 3) direct instruction. We conducted an experimental study in situ in three fourth-grade classes in a public school in Singapore, manipulating the way that students prepared for a collaborative activity in a topic in environmental education. Future analyses will include using measures of student artifacts to assess the effectiveness of different forms of preparation on both the process of learning and post-activity outcomes. In this paper, we share two cases to illustrate student ability to generate solutions to a wicked problem.
