Abstract: In open-ended and creative knowledge building communities, students engage in socially shared reasoning and discursive interaction to develop deep understanding of authentic problems related to the real world. Regulating a shared deepening focus in sustained knowledge building involves negotiating uncertainty as a space for potential idea generation and improvement. The research explores socio-cognitive and discourse practices in a class of fourth- graders studying light, whereby a shared space of epistemic objects is shaped, challenged and adapted leading to deeper conceptual explanations of the optical phenomena. Qualitative analysis of talk-in-interaction, online students notes and teacher's journal showed patterns of cognitive embodiment and uncertainty-oriented discursive practices to explain shared regulation of progressive knowledge building.
