Abstract: This study follows the Knowledge Forum discussions of 4th graders in order to assess changes in literacy-related outcomes over the course of two semesters. Analyses revealed that Knowledge Building activities, such as use of scaffolding tools, increased over time. In turn, these activities were positively correlated with improved essay writing, particularly for the low-performing group. Our findings suggest that Knowledge Building pedagogy and Knowledge Forum technology together support the development of students’ writing literacy and multiliteracies for 21st century.
