Abstract: Pair programming is a collaborative learning mode to foster novice learners’ computer programming. Previous empirical research results in contrasting conclusions about the effect of pair programming on student learning. To further understand students’ pair programming, this study uses interaction analysis approaches to examine three contrasting pairs’ collaborative behaviors in Minecraft programming platform. The results show that the high-ranked student pair is characterized as the interactive and goal-oriented pair; the middle-ranked student pair is characterized as the highly-interactive and process-oriented pair; and the low-ranked student pair is characterized as the lowly-interactive and programming-distracted pair. Based on the results, this research proposes pedagogical and theoretical implications for future instructional design and empirical research of collaborative programming.
