Interactive Group Activity: A Socially Mediated Tool for Opening an Interpretive Space in Classroom Research
The present article concentrates on the Interactive Group Activity (IGA) tool as a means of uncovering children’s meaning making following an extended period of learning. The IGA acts as a group assessment device underlining the socially mediated nature of children’s learning. This paper describes how the IGA tool evolved, gives its form and structure, argues for its affordances and suggests possibilities for its wider use.

A rich literature discusses various types of small-group learning formats and how those formats affect achievement. Few studies, however, have examined students’ perceptions of small-group learning experiences. This work extends the small-group literature by studying stories written in response to a picture of children in a small group by students who attend Comprehensive School Reform (CSR) schools about learning in small groups.Results suggest that students in these CSR schools held positive beliefs about their small-group learning experiences.
