Abstract: Enabling collaborative interaction across social levels over longer timescales represents a key research challenge in computer-supported collaborative learning (CSCL). This study investigates a multi-layer interaction approach to cross-community knowledge building supported by the design of Idea Thread Mapper (ITM). A design-based research study was conducted in four Grade 5 classrooms that studied human body systems over six months. ITM was used to support student knowledge building discourse in each classroom and cross-classroom interaction in a shared meta-space focused on a cross-cutting challenging problem: How do people grow? Multi-level discourse analysis traced students’ collective idea development in the cross-classroom discourse that built on the diverse lines of inquiry developed within each classroom. The findings contribute new understandings and designs for expanding CSCL practices across networks of classrooms, enabling a larger creative context for students’ ever-deepening work with ideas.
