Dialogic concept mapping uses a sociocognitive perspective for metacognition of the zone of proximal development in the present (cf. Valsiner & van der Veer, 1993). Cognitive theories of mental model (Johnson-Laird, 1983), concept mapping (Novak & Gowin, 1984), cognitive load (Sweller, 1994), and psychological distance (Sigel, 2002) are synthesized in dialogic concept mapping for operationalization in the sociocultural ZPD framework in the metacognition or “seeing” of ZPD instances. Case studies of student academic writers’ dialogic concept maps are analyzed in this paper for the metacognition of ZPD instances. The results indicate there is a shifting collaboration in metacognitive ZPD-concept maps.
