Abstract

Interest drives engagement in learning and supports learners' spontaneous participation in CSCL settings. However, few studies have investigated how interest development is supported or hindered during learning activities. This microethnographic study explores how a learner's interest decreased during collaborative design activities in a summer camp for elementary-level students. The analysis shows that problems surrounding learners' different interests and facilitators' directed intervention could hinder interest development.
