Abstract: Student talk centred initiatives show promising learning gains when compared with the status quo. In this paper we introduce a web-based application to scaffold learner-learner talk intended for use in the secondary science classroom, on the subject of electricity. The programme builds upon what is successful in a well-known “clicker” type application and furthers it in line with previously established good practice for collaborative task design. Additional tasks, including simulations, group discussion work and think-pair-share, have been implemented, collecting answers from learners (and sometimes providing feedback to them) at each stage. The application, “Talking Circuits”, goes beyond the implementation of a simple “clicker system” with the addition of scaffolding hints, a course specific e-Book and a function to request help from the teacher.
