Abstract

This study investigated both learning effectiveness and personal and interpersonal awareness in synchronous collaborative problem-solving concept mapping (CM) via ICT with two computer communication channels. Sixty students in 30 groups drew their shared concept maps in three conditions of the experiment, face-to-face (FtF), ICT with text, and ICT with audio and text connection. In interpersonal awareness, participants in the audio/text group had lower performance in attention and total score in comparison with FtF group and lower performance in reaction with both text and FtF groups. In learning effectiveness, there were no significant differences amongst the groups, but in learning effectiveness at the level of the group as a whole the performance of the text group was better than both FtF and audio/text groups. The results show that CM in collaborative learning situation via ICT can be used as effective as FtF and more research is needed to show the reason of lower performance of the text/audio group.
