Abstract: Dual eye-tracking research has shown that during collaboration, “togetherness” is important. This togetherness can either be attentional and/or cognitive. Previous research has shown that convergence or synchronicity is beneficial for collaborative learning outcomes. However, during collaboration divergence or asynchronicity can also be fruitful. In this paper, we present an analytical shift to understand the collaborative processes during these asynchronous episodes. Such episodes are defined by lack of joint visual attention (JVA) or joint mental effort (JME) or both. JVA and JME are defined using Dual eye-tracking data. We analyze the actions and dialogues during these episodes to highlight the key differences between high and low performing dyads while they co-create concept-maps. Using the results, we propose JME-based gaze-aware systems to potentially increase the collaborative effectiveness.
