Abstract

The research examined the influence of the computer on the collaborative skills of dyads, students’ individual collaborative skills, and students’ performance in a third-grade history lesson, taking into consideration initial attitudes toward collaborative learning as well as initial individual collaborative skills. Participants were divided into a control group and an experimental group. The same learning materials were used for both groups, with the difference that the learning materials for the experimental group were delivered via a computer. The results of the research demonstrate the positive impact of computers on students’ performance only, as the experimental group outperformed the control group.
