Abstract

This paper investigates how distributed leadership emerges during tablet-mediated collaboration in an outdoor learning environment. We posit that one of the affordances of mobile technology is to mediate the distributed leadership that emerges among group members during small group activities. A collective case study was conducted to observe how children assume different types of leadership during collaborative tasks. The findings show evidence that supports the mediating role of tablet computers on the emergence of distributed leadership during a collaborative group task.
