Facilitating Learner Group Interactions using Intelligent Agents Collaborative Mobile Learning

This research study investigated the effect of facilitated group participation and regulated group cognitive conflicts on the level of group knowledge construction in collaborative mobile learning environments. The research design used is a mixed study with four experiments. Study 1 investigated the effect of facilitated group participation on the level of group knowledge construction and study 2 investigated the effect of regulated group cognitive conflicts of the level of group knowledge construction. Study 3 investigated the moderating effect on the task complexity on the relationship between the facilitated group participation and the level of knowledge construction while study 4 investigated the moderating effect of task complexity on the relationship between the regulated group cognitive conflicts and the level of knowledge construction.

The results from study 1 indicated a significant difference between participants using the facilitated group participation features and those not using the features. Study 2 results show a significant difference between learners using the regulated group cognitive conflict features and those not using it. The results of study 3 show that the task complexity has a moderating effect on the relationship between the facilitated group participation and the level of group knowledge construction. Study 4 confirms that task complexity has a moderating effect on the relationship between the regulated group negotiation and the level of group knowledge construction
